Fruits that start with Y
1. Yellow Passionfruit
The shape of the passion fruit is round and its color is usually yellow which turns dark purple with the ripening of the fruit. Internally it is juicy with numerous seeds and can be consumed, either as it is with a teaspoon or as a juice. The juice, in fact, is added to many preparations, savory and sweet, as well as drinks.
2. Yellow Guava
Also known as Yellow Strawberry Guava, Yellow guava has a sweet taste and is filled with vitamin C. It surpasses orange in the levels of vitamin C concentration. People can eat it raw like common guava but some people make jam and jellies out of it.
Yumberry is delicate and tender, and the most delicious berry. Wash it and throw it into your mouth. When you hear the sound of teeth biting the flesh, you taste the sweet and sour juice. From the branch to the tip of the tongue, without delay for a quarter of an hour, is the highest respect for yumberry. It could be made into jams, smoothies, and a harmonious mixture of sweet and sour is enough to be included in many desserts.
4. Yunnan Hackberry
This rare fruit is a cross between blackcurrant and gooseberry. The fruit is smooth, soft and the taste of blackcurrant dominates it. The fruits of Hackberry are filled with proteins, vitamins, and minerals.
Connoisseurs of oriental cuisine probably know what yuzu is. The fruit looks like a small grapefruit with shriveled skin. The color ranges from dark green to light yellow, depending on the degree of maturity. The taste of yuzu is unique, taking the best from lemon, grapefruit, and tangerine. At the same time, the fruit is sour than lemon, rather tart, with shades of needles and floral notes.
6. Yemenite Citron
The Yemeni citron is one of the original citrus fruits due to which other types of citrus originated. Fruit size ranges from medium to large. Most fruits are oblong, elongated, and pointed. The rind is yellow, rough and corrugated, very thick. The pulp of Yemeni citron does not contain segments and bubbles with juice, but it is very soft and sweet, has a pleasant aroma. Well-known scientists suggest that the absence of segments is clear proof of genetic purity.
7. Yellow Watermelon
Yellow watermelon is a hybrid of cultivated and wild plants. It can have a tropical fruit or pumpkin flavor. This is a residual beneficial mutation that the berry inherited from its wild parent. Yellow watermelons are devoid of red pigment, but their properties are in no way inferior to their counterparts, for example, they are rich in beta-carotene, a powerful antioxidant.
8. Yucca Fruit
The fruits of this Yucca are edible and are eaten raw, baked, and boiled. Unripe fruits are sweet. Fruits are leathery, berry-like, cylindrical, shaped like a banana, turn red when ripe.
