Fruits that start with Z

The names are not enough so now I am going to brief you about the above-mentioned fruits.

1. Zwetschge

The other name of the fruit is Prune Plums. They are competitive fruits with beautiful skin color, harmonious taste, and attractive pulp consistency. Yes, this is the same prune that is stored for a long time and is used not only in compotes but also in baked goods, in meat dishes and salads, giving them aroma and a unique sweet and sour taste.

2. Zhe Fruit

It has a few other names like Chinese mulberry, Che fruit, Mandarin Melon Berry, etc. This beautiful baby is way too underappreciated and we gotta fix that, Hon! These berries look slightly different than mulberry as they are compact and more geometrical. They are juicy and sweet and as perfect as any fruit could get. IDK what’s stopping you from including them in your daily lives.

3. Zinfandel Grape

Zinfandel (or zine as it is called in the United States) is a dark-skinned grape variety very popular in California. You can eat them raw but they are widely used to make delicious wine and other stuff like jams or jellies. The slightly bigger grapes are always found in huge clusters.
