    Avocadoes, however, are fantastic as guacamole and in avocado and chicken salad with vinegar on them. They're also very good for you.

    They are a healthy choice, but I never liked them even in guacamole :p: But apparently mangoes are great too- for vitamin D intake that is. Actually, most fruit are good for you apart from bananas :evilbanana:

    Bananas ARE good for you. Vitamin B6, Fibre, Potassium, Vitamin C (I think) etc etc. They're especially good in a morning though for a wake up

    Yeah, I guess I always just thought they were vegetables. Although to be honest I've never really given it that much thought.

    Well, I've read somewhere that because they contain lots of seeds(pips) in their flesh, similarly to proper berries they are classed as large berries:
    Yeah, yeah. Anti-oxidants. Great. But what about this berry thing? How can a watermelon be a berry?

    Here's how. A berry is " a simple fleshy fruit that usually has many seeds". Now there are three kinds of "true berries": (1) Smooth-skinned berries with entirely edible pericarps, such as blueberries, currants, gooseberries, cranberries, grapes, tomatoes, and dates. (2) Round, leathery rinded berries, such as oranges, lemons, limes, and grapefruits; they are the citrus fruits, referred to as hesperidia. (3) Elongated, many-seeded berries with a tough rind such as bananas, cucumbers, watermelons, and other members of the gourd family; they are referred to botanically as pepos.
