In the 21st century, however, things have changed quite a bit. See if you can identify some of the new (and not so new) varieties of these fruits that are now available almost all-year-round.

Genetic engineering is no longer a thing of science fiction. Literally, the "fruits" of sciency labor are now available on the shelves at your local market. This test will surely get your creative juices flowing about some of the juiciest foods on the planet!
