The great thing about giving food as your holiday gift is that it is sure to be eaten! When thinking of that perfect gift to send that really says “thank you” or “you are appreciated,” the gift of food goes a long way to expressing those sentiments.


Choices, Choices, Choices!

For so many people, one can get in a rut when it comes to food. And, depending upon one’s location, food selection can be limited. This can work toward one’s advantage when shopping for gifts of food.

Here are just some ideas of gifts that include fruits:

  • Fruit Basket Gifts
  • Fruit of the Month Gifts
  • Fruit Bouquets


Most Popular Fruits

Not sure what the most popular fruits are? Well, this may be surprising for some, but here are the top ten most popular fruits from least popular to most popular, in America. You won’t believe what the most popular fruit is! Starting at number ten is lemons, then cherries, then grapes, then pineapple, apples and oranges coming in at the number five most popular fruit. At number four is mangoes, third is strawberries with watermelon coming in second to the number one fruit, bananas!


Most Popular Fruit in the World?

To the astonishment of many people, the most popular fruit in the world is the mango! Mangoes are consumed three-to-one over bananas and ten-to-one over apples. With over 2,000 different kinds of mangoes varying in size from a handful of ounces to as much as four pounds, the nutritional value far exceeds other fruits as a great source of vitamins C and E as well as niacin, iron, potassium and beta carotene.


A Fruit by Any Other Name

In the health-conscious society of today, and with the hustle and bustle of the world, the life span of fresh fruit is relatively short. For that reason, food dehydrators have gained in popularity so as to prolong the ‘shelf life’ of most fruits, while also providing much needed nutritional snacks. Dried mangoes, pineapples and bananas all make great and delicious snacks that travel well and last for weeks.
