This year was an interesting year, as nobody got more than 50%. The slimmest of margins (half a point) separated the winner from second place.

1. A wireless handheld device. Blackberry
2. The oldest but most popular. Mango. Most eaten fruit globally and cultivated in India for thousands of years.
3. Infidel citrus. Kaffir Lime (Kaffir means non-believer in Arabic although has other meanings too)
4. If Popeye the Sailor Man was a fruit. Papaya
5. Legume gelato. Ice-cream bean.
6. What Tasmania and Chile have in common. Ugni, also known as Tazziberry or Chilean Guava.
7. What’s good for the berry is good for the gander. Gooseberry. Adapted from the old adage.
8. Every day commemorates this fruit. Date.
9. Can I upload a .gif of this deciduous, hot climate fruit? The climactic clue should have been enough to arrive at fig, although the second clue was ‘.gif’ (spelling fig backwards)
10. With each harvest, a dragon is blinded. Known as the ‘dragon’s eye’ in Chinese due to the resemblance that a de-shelled fruit has with an eye.
11. Largest urban fruit in the world. New York City = Big Apple. Maybe the five boroughs correspond to an apple’s five sections?
12. Where the Adam’s Apple meets the pineal gland. Pineapple.
13. Name two fruits that are also verbs. Squash, prune and date are all verbs.
14. This tongue-twister was once classified as a sapote. Miracle Fruit.
15. Could people be allergic to it? Bunchosia argentea, Peanut butter tree.
16. Chronologically advanced berry. Elderberry
17. When you’ve planted the seed but you can’t elope. Rock melon (Cantaloupe).
18. Red when ripe but taken black or white. Coffee.
19. From the Orient to the Occident… to the heavens. Persimmon. The fruit of the Gods in both Greek mythology and Chinese tradition. Diospyros means ‘divine fruit’.
20. A puppy with a bell that stalks you home. Pup, bell and stalk (pseudo-stem) are all features of the banana plant.
21. Aztecan family jewels. Avocado. Comes from the native word ‘āhuacatl’ meaning ‘testicle’.
22. Eaten in biblical bondage, did it inspire their escape route? While slaves in Egypt, the Hebrews ate watermelons. Of course their ‘escape route’ was through no less than water - the ‘Red’ sea.
23. Why count sheep when you can eat fruit? Casimiroa or White Sapote. Known to have a sedative effect, its native name cochitzapotl literally means “sleep sapote”.
24. The leaves might be a hot pink but its home is ice-cold. Actinidia Kolomikta (Arctic kiwi, Manchurian Gooseberry, variegated kiwi, or ‘chameleon plant’ as the Scandinavians call it)
25. Giant’s Causeway guards the treasure beneath. Monstera deliciosa, Mexican breadfruit, fruit salad plant. Giant/monstera reference plus the tessellating hexagonal segments of the peel are like the geological feature.

The three entries combined managed to arrive at all answers except the one for mango, miracle fruit, persimmon, banana, white sapote and Arctic Kiwi, giving a result of 19/25. With each year I thought I was making an easier quiz but the results have shown otherwise.

Congrats to MarkMelb who scored first place with 12/25. Sometimes I wonder what I would get on my own quizzes...
