Green fruits are not that common around the world. Obviously, I am talking about fruits that are green when ripe. This color is usually caused by retention of chlorophyll inside the fruit upon ripening.

Although this color may not be as appealing to your eye as red, yellow, or blue fruits, green fruits provide lots of benefits for your body. Hence you should make these a part of your daily diet.

Without any further delay, let me present you with the largest list of green fruits.
