The banana is the fruit of the banana plant. Famously clad in a yellow, peelable jacket, a ripe banana has a sweet, creamy flesh. It can be eaten out of hand or used in desserts.

Though not all berries are edible, the ones that are, such as blueberries, can be rich in vitamins and antioxidants. The berry group not only includes blueberries, blackberries and raspberries but also watermelons, tomatoes, pumpkins and avocados.

Butter is a solid made from the churning of cream. In the United States, the Department of Agriculture determines the grade of the butter. Buttermilk is the liquid that is collected as a byproduct of the churning of butter.
