Quiz Answer Key and Fun Facts
1. Ribes rubrum is the scientific name for which red fruit?

Answer: Redcurrant

The Ribes genus includes blackcurrants and whitecurrants, as well as the redcurrant, and gooseberries are also part of the same family. The rubrum part of the name comes from the Latin, and means red, so that might have helped you pick the right answer. Redcurrants can be made into jams, or jellies, and are sometimes used to accompany roast lamb. Redcurrant jam is also one of the traditional ingredients of the Austrian pasty Linzer torte.
2. The cranberry is normally an accompaniment to which meat?

Answer: Turkey

The name of cranberry comes from the original name of craneberry, possibly from a slight resemblance of the plant to the bird. The fruit is too tart to eat for most people, and the major part of the crop is converted into juice, often mixed with sweeter fruits. Cranberries are also made into jams and jellies, which are eaten with turkey as part of the traditional Thanksgiving meal in North America and at Christmas in the UK.
3. Three of these apple varieties are red, or reddish. Which one is definitely not?

Answer: Granny Smith

Gala apples are mostly red, with some yellow and green stripes, and were developed in New Zealand. The Braeburn is reddish orange in colour, with a yellowish background, and is another New Zealand apple. Lord Lambourne apples were named for the president of the Royal Horticultural Society, and date from 1907. Granny Smith apples were originally grown in Australia, in the nineteenth century, and have green skins.
4. The cherry is a member of which genus?

Answer: Prunus

The cherry is just one of the fruits from the Prunus family, which also includes the nectarine, peach and plum. The cherry is described as a drupe, which applies to any fruit with a stone in the middle. Varieties include Bing, which is deep red in colour and Morello, a sour cherry more often used for cooking. Malus is the apple genus, and Pyrus is where pears are found. Mangifera is the genus for mangoes. All these fruits can also be found in red varieties.
5. Strawberries are a summer favourite in the UK and are indelibly associated with which sporting event?

Answer: Wimbledon

Cultivation of strawberries began in the eighteenth century, although there are records showing that wild strawberries were used for medicine in Roman times. They have become one of the world's most popular fruits, being eaten with cream, used in pies and made into jam. Strawberries and cream are one of the highlights of the Wimbledon tennis tournament each year.

The Grand National and Boat Race are both held in the spring, and cricket is not particularly associated with any fruit.
6. Although the tomato is botanically a fruit, it was officially classed as a vegetable in the USA in 1893.

Answer: True

In the UK, tomatoes are usually called a fruit, but the Supreme Court of the United States ruled that it was a vegetable for the purposes of taxation. This was based on the 'common sense' view that it was eaten as a savoury item rather than a sweet one. The opposite ruling was made (in 1947) for rhubarb, which is technically a vegetable, but treated as a fruit.
7. The raspberry has the scientific name of Rubus and is a member of which family?

Answer: Rose

Raspberries grow on canes, and most varieties are red. There are other colours available, with yellow, purple and black raspberries being grown. The fruit grows on canes, with Russia being one of the leading commercial growers. The fruit can be frozen, made into jam or juice, or dried.

The taste is normally sharper than that of the strawberry. The pansy is a member of the viola family and the onion is an allium. The daffodil comes under the amaryllis family.
8. The pomegranate is native to which part of the world?

Answer: Persian Gulf

The pomegranate has been around for thousands of years, with mentions in the Bible and Koran. It is often seen as a fertility symbol due to the large number of seeds the fruit contains. The name comes from Latin and means 'seeded apple'. The pomegranate was originally grown in Iran and Iraq, before spreading to other regions.

It is now grown in southern Europe, the Middle East, Africa, India and in North and South America.
9. The loganberry is a cross between a raspberry and which other fruit?

Answer: Blackberry

The loganberry was developed in the late nineteenth century by John H. Logan, in California, and the fruit was named for him. The original cross was between the Antwerp red raspberry and wild blackberries, and produced an acidic fruit which was not very palatable when fresh.

They were more edible when made into pies or juice, and further crosses refined the taste even more. The berries themselves look like red blackberries.
10. All the grapes listed for this question are grown for wine making, but only one is classed as a red grape. Can you identify it?

Answer: Merlot

Merlot grapes are actually a darkish blue, almost black, on the vine, but they are used for red wine making, especially Bordeaux. The variety was first mentioned by name in the late eighteenth century and is believed to take its name from the French word for a young blackbird. Riesling is a white grape, from the Rhine region of Germany. Chardonnay is a white grape from Burgundy, in France, and is used in white wine production, as is Riesling. Muscadet is actually the wine made from the white grape Melon de Bourgogne, but the name has become interchangeable with the wine.
