A bright pink fruit can be found in areas of central California, with pink and yellow fruit blooming along the coast, according to a recent survey.
The orange-colored fruit, known as jellies or candy-like fruits, are a favorite snack among families who eat them with milk or butter, according the National Center for Food Safety.
The orange-red fruits have a sweet, slightly salty flavor and are sold in fruit baskets.
A yellow-green fruit called “orange jam” is another popular snack, and its orange color has a slight sweet and savory flavor, according a 2010 National Geographic report.
It’s sold in juice boxes and canned foods.
A red-orange fruit called cherry pie is also popular, and it has a similar sweet and salty flavor to jelly fruits, according The Associated Press.
“Pink fruits can be a real treat, but it’s important to know what you’re getting into,” said Dr. Linda Stowe, a certified personal dietitian and nutritionist in San Jose.
“Don’t eat them unless you know exactly what you are getting into.
Just because you get a taste of a pink fruit does not mean it’s healthy,” she said.
According to the National Food Safety Board, about 20% of the nation’s fruit and vegetable products contain sugar and about 25% of Americans consume more than 1 cup of sugar per day.
