What Makes Fruit Coloring Pages Fun?
Our fruits are delicious and full of nutrients. Plus, they come in different shapes and varieties. In fact, my most memorable days always start with a yummy fruit. I eat them because of all the minerals and vitamins that make them a great natural medicine. While I was thinking about all the different things that I can color in for my fruits, I thought of sharing the following fun facts about fruits.
1. Some Fruits are Drupes
I recently discovered that cherries, peaches, and plums are drupes. A lot of us don’t know what drupes are, and that’s okay. But, a drupe is what’s known as a stone fruit. This means that when we take a bite into them, they have a hard pit or a stone in the center. What’s more interesting is that our almonds, pecans, and walnuts are also drupes. The difference is that we eat what’s in the middle instead of the fruit flesh. When we use our coloring pages, we should use different colors to show the differences between these drupe fruits.
2. Bananas Hasten Ripening
Whenever I find that I have other fruit that isn’t fully ripe and that I want to eat, I use a banana to help. When we store unripe fruit in the same bag with a banana, it helps to speed up the ripening process. The thing is that our bananas produce an ethylene gas that is essential for speeding up the process of ripening our other fruit. This fact can make any fruit coloring pages come alive. We can use different colored pens to show the different stages of our unripe fruit and how it changes once it interacts with a banana.
3. Fruits have Fat
Generally, I like to eat fruits because I assume that they don’t have any fat. Imagine my shock when I learned that avocados and coconuts do contain fat in them? We always eat fruits because we know that they will keep our calories at a minimum. But, avocados and coconuts are the two exceptions to this dietary rule. We can find a useful way to show this exception in our coloring pages.
4. Peppers Can be Fruits
We always assume that bell peppers are vegetables. However, when finding information to include in our coloring pages, I found out that they’re actually fruits. Studies suggest that our fruits are part of a plant that grows from a flower. Moreover, it has seeds. So, if I have to be technical about things, I would go on to mention that our cucumbers, pumpkins, and squash are also fruits. When we explore the variations of fruits in our coloring pages, we shouldn’t forget to include what we assume to be vegetables.
5. Kiwis Have More Vitamin C
Firstly, we should all know that there are many fruits and vegetables that have vitamin C. In addition, we should also learn that our oranges don’t have as much vitamin C as Kiwis do. I also love the additional minerals and vitamins such as potassium that you find in these fruits.
