There are plenty of reasons to eat fruit, whether it’s cut for you or not. It’s refreshing and sweet, it’s not terrible for you, and — maybe least importantly, but important still — it’s pretty to look at. More so than its vegetable brethren, fruit is adorable: small and colorful, you can cup it in the palm of your hand. A toddler with a rim of watermelon stained around its mouth is a nightmare to its parents, but to those who don’t have to wash sticky hands and faces , it’s the clarion call of warm and sunny days ahead.
But not all fruit is created equally cute and there is indeed a hierarchy, which we will explore here with the 15 cutest fruits that grow on our green earth. Keep in mind, this list is definitive and will be edited under no circumstances.
