Our planet is diverse in different types of fruits. The five continents are home to a wide variety of extraordinary fruits. They differ in fruit taste, smell, color, structure, size and popularity. There are many types of plants in the world. Fruits, the list of which is quite large, surprise us with a variety of shapes, tastes, and smells. They amaze our imagination with the ability to adapt to the specific conditions of the environment. In this article will be discussed Fruits that starts with A.
First one of Fruits that starts with A is an apple which is a multi-seeded, non-opening fruit characteristic of plants of the subfamily Apple of the Rose family (this type of fruit, in particular, has an apple tree, pear, cotoneaster, hawthorn, medlar, quince, mountain ash). In a narrow sense, it is the fruit of a home apple tree. Small apple fruits, usually collected in inflorescences, are called apple (for example, mountain ash). The apple is formed from the lower ovary, which occurs in pinks due to the presence of hypanthium; this is an extended receptacle, fused with the perianth and the base of the androeum. The structure of an apple resembles a berry.
Morpho genetically, the apple is formed from the hemi-syncarpous gynoecium. Hypanthium in apple trees grows together with carpels and partially or completely covers them; this is how the lower ovary is formed. Then the carpels are immersed in the pulp, which is a mesocarp. The exocarp (“skin” of an apple) is formed by hypanthium; the remains of adherent staminate filaments and sepals are preserved on it. Thus, the apple is a multi-leaf overgrown with the pulp of hypanthium.
A typical leaf-shaped apple is found in most representatives of the subfamily; this includes apple, pear, mountain ash, quince, but in some genera (hawthorn, cotoneaster) the seed is enclosed in a hard lignified shell. Such a fruit is called a drupe apple.
To continue with Fruits that starts with A information will be given about apricot:
Common apricot is a one of types of fruit which is large tree of the Rosaceae family, 8-15 meters high, trunk up to 30-40 cm in diameter with grayish-brown bark. In the axils of the leaf, the buds sit in groups. Flowers are pink or white, almost sessile. Begins to bear fruit from three to five years. The fruit is a pale yellow to orange rounded drupe. The pulp is juicy, sweet, and aromatic. “The fruits of health” are sometimes called apricots.
Fruit pulp contains a large amount of sugars (mainly sucrose), organic acids (citric, tartaric, malic, salicylic), carotene, pectin, starch, as well as tannins and flavonoid substances (quercetin, lycopene, etc.). In addition, the fruit pulp contains nicotinic acid, vitamins C, B1, B2, P.
Fresh and dried apricot fruits have a laxative, weak diuretic, tonic, anti-atherosclerotic effect, improve metabolism and hematopoiesis, and are a source of B vitamins, ascorbic acid, potassium, iron. The shriveled in apricot protects against colon cancer. In addition, it reduces constipation, hemorrhoids, and varicose veins.
Apricot has a mild laxative effect, apricot juice normalizes the acidity of the stomach, so it can be used for colitis and constipation. Apricot improves the processes of hematopoiesis and the work of the heart, promotes the elimination of cholesterol from the body, stimulates intestinal peristalsis, and has a general strengthening effect. It is used as a mild laxative, thirst-relieving and antipyretic agent. As a diuretic, with sluggish bowel function.
Finally last one of Fruits that starts with A which will be discussed in this article is an avocado.
Now it may seem that the avocado has always been with us. In fact, they began to import it into Russia in the mid-nineties; even later they began to fill the shelves with it. Of course, the green fleshy fruit was not bred in secret laboratories at the end of the last century; its history lasts longer than the glory of “rainbow bagels”. Before hitting Instagram, avocados have been in the diet for thousands of years. Archaeologists have found traces of the fruit in caves in the Tehuacan and Oaxaca valleys in Mexico and date them to 8000 BC. e.
After another couple of millennia, avocado entered not only the lunch menu, but also the agricultural sphere: they began to cultivate it, increasing in size. And in honor of the avocado they named the month of the calendar, believed that it gives masculine strength, and they decorated it with images of sarcophagi.
Avocado owes its current deafening popularity all over the world not only to its neutral fruit taste and unique “fat” and delicate texture, but also to the trend for healthy lifestyle and plant-based cuisine – it really contains a lot of vitamins and minerals. And when adherents of these gastronomic trends began to abandon the use of oils in favor of whole foods, this fruit, along with nuts, turned out to be indispensable for sauces. It’s easy to make a salad dressing – blend peeled and pitted avocados with a clove of garlic, fresh lemon or lime juice, pink salt, water, or any plant-based milk. If desired, you can add freshly ground black pepper, mustard and greens – cilantro, parsley and green basil are ideal.
Previously, avocados were mainly used for cold summer soups. Here is one of my favorite recipes. Add cucumber and avocado slices, chopped garlic, some freshly squeezed lemon juice, water, pink salt and black pepper, an armful of green basil leaves, and a few chives to a blender. Then grind until smooth and be sure to refrigerate for 10-15 minutes. Then pour the soup over the bowls and garnish with fresh mint and red chili flakes for contrast.
There are many fruits in the world but in this article was discussed Fruits that starts with A, which are very healthy and can benefit human being in many ways. They are perfect if you are having lack of vitamins and they are most common which makes them easily obtainable.
