A fruit is an often edible part of a plant that is derived from a fertilized, ripened ovary. As a dietary staple, fruits are appreciated for their sweetness and as a rich source of nutrients, especially vitamins. Gardeners enjoy planting fruit-bearing plants for their usefulness as a food and also for the array of color and diversity they bring into the garden. In agricultural industry, fruits are grown for food consumption, such as apples and oranges, and for their use to manufacture a wide variety of drinks, jams and jellies, and flavorings, as well as for the production of wine.
