When it comes to fruit shopping, my basket is always ready. I love fruits. I love having them for breakfast, snack, lunch, dinner, midnight snack, with yogurt and really whenever I want to eat. And depending on the season, I prefer one fruit over the other. Just because when that specific fruit is out of season, then I don’t really get to have that fruit until it is back in season and in stock and on display. You know what I mean?

Okay, for example, think of mangoes. When those delicious yellowish-golden fruits are in season, I have those more than apples because they are the sweetest when they are in season. When mangoes are out of season, I have other fruits like cherries, bananas, apples, oranges, blueberries, strawberries, tomatoes and more. That’s right, tomatoes are part of the fruit club. Tomatoes are botanically classified as fruits because they grow from flowers and they have seeds. Do you know what tomatoes and other fruits are called in Spanish?
