If you hadn't guessed already, the T109 - lovingly dubbed the papple - looks like an apple but tastes like a pear. Grown in New Zealand, it's a cross between European and Asian pear varieties and is the latest fruit hybrid to hit the headlines with hopes it will be grown in the UK by 2015.
Commonly known as minneolas, tangelos are a mixture of tangerines and either grapefruit or pomelos. They're the size of an adult fist and have the taste of a tangerine whilst being much easier to peel. The tangelo is also easily distinguishable by it's 'nipple' on the top.

The brainchild of a Japanese farmer almost 30 years ago, the watermelon was grown in a square shape as a way to easily store it in a fridge and to cut it without it rolling around. The watermelons are grown in glass cube moulds and due to the extra effort required in growing, not to mention it's convenience and unique shape, it is sold for the equivalent of around £70 in Japan!
