Fruits that start with T

Now, it’s time to know all the fascinating stuff about the fruits mentioned above.

1. Tomato

Tomato goes first in the list of fruits that start with T as I’ve never considered it as a fruit (I’m sure most of you are with me) but it actually is nothing but a fruit. An interesting fact is that initially the tomatoes were yellow, then they were brought to Europe, and already there, after a couple of hundred years, they acquired the familiar red color. Today in the world there are about 10 thousand varieties that differ in size, shape and color.

There are red, orange, and yellow colors, depending on the species. There are also purple-skinned fruits. The skin is smooth, thin, and bitter, the flesh is dark orange or light brown, with small black or red seeds. Tamarillo fruit pulp combines a sour, sweet, and salty taste.

5. Tamarind

At the first glance at the tamarind, it seems that nuts will fall out of it. In the configuration, it resembles enlarged peanut pods or beans sealed in a hard shell. The pulp is rich chocolate color with a shade of red. It contains a large amount of fiber, protein, carbohydrates, sucrose. This is a high-calorie product.

Not only sweets are made from their pulp, but also additives to meat and fish dishes. Eastern cuisine often uses beans not only as of the main ingredient but also as a spice.

6. Tangor

Fruits are medium in size (4-8 cm) and weigh about 70-120 grams.  The yellow-orange peel is thin (2-3.5 mm), difficult to peel, slightly bumpy, adheres well to the pulp. The pulp tastes very sweet, orange, tender, juicy, and has an exceptional aroma in combination with a delicious taste. It is not for nothing that one of the names of this variety contains the word honey (Honey Tangerine).

9. Terap

The other name of Terap is Durian. The name of the aphrodisiac fruit comes from the name of the Greek goddess of love Aphrodite. And for good reason: these sweet fruits heighten feelings and give inspiration. There is an assumption that durian has a particularly positive effect on the human body, rejuvenating it. It tastes like melted ice cream in a waffle cup, uncooked condensed milk, candy, or barberry. If the slices are thick, in consistency, then the fruit will be very sweet, and if they are thinner, then sweet and sour.

10. Totapuri Mango

The Totapuri mango is an important commercial mango variety widely grown in the southern states of India. This variety of mango is easily identifiable with its oblong shape and beak-tipped. The consistency of Totapuri mangoes makes them the best choice for juices. In addition, our high-quality processed mango pulp and puree concentrate are also used to make fillings for fruit bread, baby food, cakes, pastries, muffins, etc.
