But the instructions were the most popular fruits in recipes. Aside from lemon meringue pie, lemonade, and lemon bars, lemon juice is used in tons of other recipes both sweet and savory, to add a bit of acid.

Rhubarb is used in a lot of recipes that also call for fruit, but I can't say that I've ever heard it actually regarded as a fruit, much less debated to be one the way tomatoes/avocados/squash/etc., are. It's just that one vegetable-y thing that GOES with fruit.

Actually, physalis is a different fruit, sometimes called "golden berry" or "grouncherry" in English-speaking countries. In France, we simply call passionfruit "fruit de la passion".

You see cranberries in a lot of recipes in the US. Over here in Saudi Arabia pomegranates are used all the time especially in desserts but it's also just a very popular flavor in general. I don't think I've ever seen a recipe calling for passion fruit before- I see them used mostly in making smoothies or odd-flavored beverages. Maybe chewing gum.

In the US pomegranates became popular a few years ago for their juice, which is supposed to be another "new" superfood. I see pom juice everywhere in the stores now, but I only see the fruits during the Christmas season. (I live in a rural area. That probably makes a difference.)

I think in terms of most popular fruit in general, apple is probably #1. But this quiz is ranked by a website for most popular use in recipes. Bananas are pretty much only used in banana bread. Lemon juice is used in a lot of things.

In New Zealand, passionfruit is very common and never heard of another name for it. Many/most people with a garden would grow it and our recipe books are full of it. Also gooseberries are fairly common and used in cooking. But cranberries and pomegranates are quite new and exotic here, and we have virtually no recipes to use them!

Passion fruit is becoming increasingly common as an ingredient in higher end bakeries and fancy baking cookbooks. It is also, unfortunately, still relatively hard to find in grocery stores, even in a foodie metropolis like San Francisco. I suspect it will make a run for this list in a few years time.

It really has a lot to do with where you are from/what is common for you. Avocado was one of the first things I tried and pomegranate was a natural but I would have sat here all day without getting date or fig. Life would be so much less than it is without the wonder that is avocado. If a recipe does not call for it, it can be enhanced by it.
