Blueberries, bananas, apples that fall

Berries and pears, we love them all

Fresh rainwater, summer heat

The part of plants that we can eat


Inside the fruit, contains the seeds

Found on bushes, grown on trees

Tomato plants, of heights will rise

With soil and compost, fertilise


Seeds we scatter, seeds we sow

All around the world they grow

Celebrate at food events

Cities, countries, continents


Supermarkets, stalls be manned

Frozen, dried, fresh or canned

Varied fruits ripen with time

Fresh fruit salad, shall we dine 


A complement of any meal

Fruits to blend and fruits to peel

Expectations to surpass

Blended poured into a glass


Garden fruit and fruit in tins

Daily fibre, vitamins

Large vineyards, where growers take

From tiny buds, to blossomed grape


Strawberry smoothie, raspberry jam

Tomato sandwich, cheese and ham

Assembled fruit upon the plate
