Exotic fruits list

When looking at the range of fruits available in the supermarket, you may think there is a lot to choose from. And actually, there is, but did you know that this range is only the tip of the fruit iceberg?

Supermarkets and grocery stores these days are keen to expand their collections of fruits, as consumers become more knowledgeable. But there are still lots of exotic fruits out there that we may never be able to buy in the grocery store around the corner.
