Fruit not only tastes good, it is good for you! Haven’t you heard those words many times over? Fruits contain vitamins, fiber and minerals so including them in your daily diet can help to ward off chronic diseases in humans.
In botany, a fruit is a part of a flowering plant that derives from specific tissues of the flower. Many fruits grow on trees and on this Scramble Squares® puzzle we have focused on four of them; apples, pears, cherries and oranges, but many grow on vines on the ground like
watermelon, cantaloupes, grapes and honeydew. Bushes are another source where fruits such as blueberries, raspberries and strawberries flourish and are easy to pick. Do you wonder
how the pineapple got it name? “Pine” is a tree and “apples” grow on trees, but a pineapple grows on a plant close to the ground, deriving its name from the Spanish word “pina” because it looks like a pine cone, and the English word, “apple” because of its sweet taste.
