Fleshy fruits could be of several different descriptions or type, but major category comes to mind right away: drupes, berries, and pomes.

Fleshy Simple Fruits

These are the variety that offers “fleshy material" around the “stone" and also they derive from the single ovary. So they can be considered simple fruits. The examples for the fleshy simple fruits are,

v Berries - Tomato, Banana, Grapes

A berry is a fleshy fruit that carriesno stony layer in the any fruit, but also contains one to many seeds. A good example of classic berries includes tomato and grapes.

The berries that are developed in citrus flowers have carries exceedingly oily surface layers over a pithy subtending layer. A specialized berry in citrus is referred as a hesperidium. Another example includes lemon, orange, lime and grapefruit. In these, the compound is a pistil forms of fruit and also have the individual "sections" are the ovaries of carpals that are fused into that one pistil.

Other specialized berries develop from flowers with the inferior ovaries. These will, of course, have the accessory layers contributed by surrounding receptacle and other necessary tissues. A very large group of well-known examples include watermelon, cucumber, squash and pumpkin. In these referred plants the specialized berry is known as pepo. In watermelon people love eating the true fruit. For pumpkin, cucumber, and squash people generally prefer the accessory rind rather than the slimy actual fruit.

v Drupes - Almond, Plum, Peach

The drupe is a type of fleshy fruit that has a stony inner layer surrounding(normally) a single seed. Drupe fruit has a pit. Examples include cherry, peach and coffee. In some examples, coconut and almond are good, it is often sold just the pit in the store as people love to eat the seed rather than the fleshy layers of fruits.

v Pomes - Pears, Apples

Another type of healthy fleshy fruit is known as the Pome. This fruit is consists of a cartilaginous core as the true fleshy fruit, and it is surrounded by a fleshy good accessory layer. The good examples of pomes are found in pear, apple and quince. People tend to love eating the fleshy receptacle, but toss the true fruit...dispersing its contained seeds. Pomes come from the actual inferior ovaries.

The apple comes out from only one flower, but it carries five carpals in its pistil that form cartilaginous core. It has good surrounded by fleshy receptacle tissue. Hence the origin of the apple is simple. Its composition is accessory, and its description is fleshy Pome.

The mulberry forms from a short stalk of flowers, each flower producing one fruit let, that fuse together to form one mulberry. So the mulberry is a multiple, true, fleshy drupe.

Fleshy Aggregate Fruits

These types of fruits also contain a soft per carp but they do not come from flowers containing a single ovary, but from single flowers with many carpals or ovaries. Some examples of these types of fruits include,

v Strawberries
v Blackberries
