Number of fruit trees

How many fruit trees are there?

The exact number is unknown

A fruit tree, as the name perfectly suggests, is a tree which bears fruit that is consumed or used by humans and some animals.  All trees that are flowering plants produce fruit.  Not too many people know that fruits are the ripened ovaries of flowers containing one or more seeds.  The exact number of fruit trees in the world is not known.  Imagine that there are over 23,000 different kinds of trees in the world.  The most popular fruit trees are the pear, apple, cherry, plum, peach and apricot.  Imagine that you can find apples in 7500 varieties.
