Red apple varietals include Rome Beauties, McIntosh, Red Delicious, Fuji and Gala.

Cranberries are traditionally grown in bogs, though this isn't strictly necessary. The fruit is high in B-complex vitamins, vitamin A and other antioxidants. Cranberries are a traditional accompaniment to Thanksgiving dinner when they're made into a sauce.

Cherries are stone fruits like peaches and plums. They grow on trees, and sour cherries provide a higher content of vitamins A and C than sweet cherries do.

Pomegranates have a red husk and red flesh inside. The red flesh encloses many small seeds. Often labeled a "superfood," the pomegranate is sometimes used in folk and alternative medicine.

Rose hips are the fruit of roses. They're high in vitamin C and can be used in soups, jams and jellies. They also are used to make wine and herbal tea. Rose hips are also good for attracting birds.

Strawberries are unusual because the fruit is actually an aggregate fruit with the seeds on the outside, each in its own ovary.
