Some fruits that start with the letter F are figs, finger limes, feijoas and Fuji apples. Fresh figs perish quickly; however, when dried, they can be stored for several months. The finger lime is a citrus fruit that is native to Australia, and feijoa is also known as guavasteen or pineapple guava. Fuji apples are a combination of the Red Delicious and Virginia Ralls Janet varieties of apples.
Figs are commonly used in baked goods such as breads, cakes and pies, and they can also be prepared as marmalade or jam. Because of their short shelf life, figs are better sold in direct sale settings such as at farmers' markets and roadside stands.
Finger limes are use to add extra flavors to recipes and to garnish food. Feijoas are a sweet-tasting fruit with an intense aroma that lingers, and its skin is waxy and can be smooth or pebbly.
Fuji apples are a sweet, juicy variety of apple that store well. They can be used in a variety of ways, including baking, snacking, juicing or in salads. Fuji apples stay fresh longer than other varieties of apples, and they can be stored in the refrigerator to help them remain fresh longer. They can also be frozen.
