Are Banana Eaters More Loving? What Your Favorite Fruit Says About You

Advertisement

In the culinary sense, “fruit” normally means the fleshy seed-producing structure of a plant that is sweet or sour and edible in the raw state. There are many foods that we may not think of as “fruit”, but botanically speaking, they are (tomatoes are a good example). In the US the most popular fruits eaten include apples, bananas, cherries, grapes, oranges, peaches, pears, plums, and berries.

The USDA recommends, for a healthful diet, that we eat at least 2 to 3 servings of fruit per day – in addition to 3-5 servings of vegetables, 4 to 9 servings of grains (preferably whole grain), 2 servings of low-fat dairy, and 1 to 2 servings of protein (lean meat, fish, poultry, nuts, and legumes). In general, one cup of fruit or 100% fruit juice (1/2 cup dried fruit) is considered a serving.

Fruits overall are naturally low in fat, sodium and calories. Being plant foods, they do not contain cholesterol. Fruits are also very rich in many vitamins, minerals and other nutrients including potassium, dietary fiber, vitamin C and folate. They also contain antioxidants that may protect the body against disease such as heart disease, cancer, and type-2 diabetes.

While there are hundreds of types of fruit, most of us tend to stick to our favorites. Could it be that choosing certain fruits can predict personality traits? Read below and see if your favorite fruit accurately predicts the type of person you are – but keep in mind, this is just for fun. There is no scientific backing for our “fruit astrology” chart.

Apple
You are an extrovert enjoying the exuberance of life. You are extravagant, impulsive and outspoken and may have a bit of a temper. You make a good team-because you are capable of taking prompt actions in most situations.

Banana
Banana lovers are very loving, gentle, warm and sympathetic to everyone around them. While having a sweet disposition, they are also lacking in self-confidence and quite timid in nature. As a result, others may often take undue advantage of your sweet-temperedness, which may cause sheer vulnerability on various occasions.

Black Grape
If you relish black grapes more than any other fruit, you are a polite and good-natured person in general, though there may be occasional quick flare-ups which will cool down just as quickly. You are a lover of beauty. Your sociable and enthusiastic nature exudes warmth and it endears others to you and you are popular in any group.

Cherry
If cherry is your favorite fruit, life isn't always as sweet for you. You often face ups and downs, particularly professionally. You have a fertile imagination and are often involved in creative pursuits. You are a very sincere and loyal partner; but find that expressing your feelings is not very easy. Your home is your haven, and you love nothing more than being surrounded by close family and your beloved partner.

Coconut
The coconut lover is a serious, very thoughtful and contemplative person. Though you enjoy socializing, you are particular about the company you keep. You tend to be stubborn but not necessarily foolhardy. Shrewd, quick-witted and alert, you ensure that you are right on top of any given scenario, especially at work.

Mango
You are a person to be reckoned with specific vision and views. You would often be found a hard nut to crack. As you are led by your own observation and analytical reasoning, influencing you would be no easy task. At times you may be venturesome and may even seem foolhardy by getting involved in something mentally challenging.

Orange
Orange lovers have enduring patience and willpower. You like to do things slowly; but very thoroughly and are completely undaunted by hard work. You tend to be shy; but are a reliable and trustworthy friend. You avoid conflict at all costs.

Peach
Like a peach, you will enjoy the juice of life. You are a friendly sort, quite frank and outspoken, which add luster to your charm. As you are good friend, you are quick to forgive and forget and value your friendships highly. You are bold and active and have independent and ambitious streaks in you that make you a real go-getter.

Pineapple
You are quick to decide and even quicker to act. You are brave in making career changes. You have exceptional organizing abilities and are undaunted by the size of the task at hand. You tend to be self reliant, sincere and honest in your dealings with others. Though you are not given to making friends very quickly, but once you do, it is for life.

Papaya
You are fearless and take much that happens in life in stride. You give considerable thought to things you do. You have a sense of humor that along with your generous nature keeps you in most people's good books. You are a go-getter in your professional life, and have a knack for being in the right place at the right time. You enjoy meeting new people and seeing new sights whenever you can.

Pear
If you put your mind to something you can do it successfully, but by and large you tend to be fickle and have trouble completing a task with the enthusiasm you started it with. You need to know the results of your efforts almost immediately. You enjoy mental stimulation; and love to get into a good discussion. You tend to be a restless and high-strung person, and are easily excitable. While you are quick to strike up a friendship with someone, maintaining it does not seem to be easy for you.
