Fruits that start with X

So now I am going to reveal the great properties of all the three fruits mentioned above.

1. Xigua

Xigua is like a watermelon with little to no seeds and is commonly found in Africa. Another thing that distinguishes Xigua from Watermelon is Xiagua is slightly smaller. The other properties are the same as watermelon. It was first originated in China so some people call it Chinese Watermelon.


2. Ximenia

Ximenia fruits are edible and have a sour apple flavor and plum aroma. Inside, the fruit contains one seed – the kernel. Ximenia kernels contain 60-70% non-drying oil, which is rich in monounsaturated fatty acids. It is composed of several long-chain fatty acids as well as Ximenynic acid, which has been shown to help improve blood circulation. 


3. Xylocarpus granatum

These fruits are globular and large (10-25cm in diameter) like a cannonball or bowling ball, brown with corky seeds. There are usually 8-10 seeds in a single fruit, although 20 seeds have been recorded. The fruits develop rapidly, usually only one fruit per inflorescence. The ripe fruit can weigh 2-3kgs!


That’s it, that’s all about the fruits that start with X. This is the shortest any list could ever get. I sometimes think that X is the social pariah of the alphabets realm. Nevermind. I’ll see you on another list. Till then, take care.
