Grape

The grape is a fruiting berry of the deciduous, woody vines of the genus Vitis. Approximately 71% of the world's grape production is used for wine, 27% as fresh fruit, and 2% as dried fruit. Yeast, one of the earliest domesticated microorganisms, occurs naturally on the skins of grapes, leading to the innovation of alcoholic drinks such as wine. The earliest known production of wine occurred around 8,000 years ago in the country of Georgia.

Miracle Fruit

The miracle fruit, also known as Sysepalum dulcificum, is a plant whose berries, when consumed, cause sour foods to taste sweet. This effect is due to miraculin, and can last up to 30 minutes. Cultivators report a demand from cancer patients because the fruit allegedly counteracts the metallic taste that is typically a side effect of chemotherapy. There has also been interest in producing them for patients with diabetes.

Mulberry

Mulberries are deciduous trees native to the temperate regions of the world. The black and red mulberry trees produce sweet fruit with intense flavor, whereas the white mulberry tree has a milder and more tart fruit.
