A third of 2,000 respondents could not identify a fig and four in ten mistook a mango for an apple
A research has discovered that most Britons can't tell an apple from a mango. More astonishingly, seven per cent ticked 'Halle Berry' when asked to identify a mulberry.
The survey went on to test Brits on their knowledge of unusual fruits. Surprisingly, only one in four recognised a baobab with only a third able to identify a durian.
Dan Rusga, of Yeo Valley, the firm that commissioned the survey to launch the company's new Baobab yogurt, said:
''We knew baobab might not be well known when we added it to our yogurt. But we were very surprised by the number of people mixing up apples and mangoes.
We hope that incorporating baobab into our limited edition yogurt will encourage people to try a new and remarkable fruit.''
Half of the people questioned did not know that pomegranates grow on trees. Only one in five were aware that pineapples are grown commercially on the ground.
