Add some color to your plate with these pretty pink fruits!
From guava and raspberries to juicy grapefruit, each one is worth checking out.
You might not realize it, but there’s a whole world of unusual and exotic pink fruits.
And they’re just waiting for you to discover them.
From pomegranates with their bright fuchsia insides to delicious lychees, these pink fruits are loaded with goodness. Plus, they’ll make any dessert recipe pop!
25 Types of Pink Fruits
This list will showcase 25 types of pink fruits. Some may be pink outside, while others are only pink in their inner flesh.
I’ve tried to stay away from those fruits that verge more on red than pink. (Think apples, strawberries, and cherries.)
Instead, if I can paint a Barbie Dream House with it, it probably made this list. Let’s see if any of your favorites made the cut.
1. Dragon Fruit
Dragon fruits are beautifully pink with either white, purple, or fuschia inner flesh.
(A fourth variety is yellow on the outside and white inside.)
They’re considered exotic fruits but are easier to find now than they once were. They’re sweet and full of tiny black edible seeds.
You can easily scoop out the flesh inside. It pairs wonderfully with other tropical fruits or tastes great on its own.
It’s also an excellent addition to cocktails and fruit drinks.
There are several varieties of guava. That includes the yellow-outside, white-inside variety popular in U.S. grocery stores.
However, one of the tastiest guavas has green skin and bubblegum-pink inner flesh.
Many people enjoy drinking its juice, but the fruit is also delicious.
You can eat it raw and whole, including the seeds. It’s hearty and somewhat mealy, but not in an unpleasant way.
Its taste ranges from quite tart to reasonably sweet.
Fiber-rich rambutans are pinkish-red with yellow-tipped spikes.
Don’t let their cactus-like appearance fool you, though. These spikes aren’t painful to touch.
To eat them, you’ll remove the spiky skin to get to the translucent white flesh within.
The edible part looks like a jelly-like white ball. The taste is sweet and fresh, perfect for snacking or a light breakfast.
On the inside, lychees look just like rambutans.
On the outside, they’re like bumpy rambutans before their spikes grow in. They have a similar pink color and egg-like shape.
They’re juicy, fruity, and somewhat floral. They, too, have the strange jelly-like consistency of rambutans.
5. Rose Apple
Rose apples have one of the strangest shapes you’ll ever see on fruit.
Some people describe them as ‘pear-shaped,’ but that’s being generous.
They’re somewhat pear-shaped, somewhat bell-shaped, and somewhat really weird.
They have thick skin that’s leathery and ranges from baby pink to almost red.
Unlike regular apples, these taste like roses, and they spoil quickly.
That makes it hard to ship them outside of their homes in India, Asia, and South America.
6. Lilly Pilly Berry
Native to Australia, lilly pilly berries are small and flavorful. (Though not everyone appreciates their particular flavor.)
They’re sweet and earthy; some describe their taste as “musky.” Most people don’t eat them raw, though they are edible.
Instead, people use them in desserts, tarts, jellies, and jams.
Yangmei berries have lots of names, including Chinese bayberry and yumberry.
They’re sweetly tart and look like smaller, brighter pink versions of lychees.
It isn’t easy to find them whole outside of Asia. However, they’re an antioxidant-packed superfood.
So they’re often sold dried or as supplements.
You might also be able to find them in Asian markets.
These mild berries are native to the Philippines.
They look like tiny raspberries. They even have a similar, though milder, flavor to raspberries.
Some people call them wild raspberries.
You can eat them raw, but most people use them to make desserts, jams, and jellies.
In places where they grow, people also boil them and eat them that way.
We can’t talk about wild raspberries without mentioning the “normal” kind.
These pink berries look like pink versions of blackberries.
They have a sweetly tart taste and are delicious raw or used in recipes.
10. Pink Grapefruit
I’ll admit. I used pink grapefruit lotion and body wash long before I ever tasted the fruit.
Because it’s so fragrant, cosmetics companies often use it to scent their products.
However, the fruit is also pretty tasty if you don’t mind a bit of bitterness. It’s a cross between an orange and a pomelo.
It features an orange rind and pink, juicy flesh inside.
Initially sweet and citrusy, the aftertaste is pretty acidic and biting.
Pomegranates’ skin can range from pale pink to red.
The edible seeds, or arils, inside can also vary in color. Most people are familiar with the bold red arils.
However, some are white, translucent pink, or even fuschia-colored.
Pomegranates are a unique fruit in that the seeds are the tastiest things about them.
They have very little flesh, and what little they have is bitter and unpalatable. Instead, people dig out the seeds and eat them.
They’re hard, sweet, and tangy-tart.
They’re also extremely juicy, making pomegranates one of the messier fruits.
12. Pink Banana
You’ve probably seen the famous blue bananas that went viral a couple of years ago.
Well, there are pink bananas out there, too! And they are bright!
They’re about the same width as their yellow counterparts but are shorter.
The peel is the only part of them that’s pink. Their flesh is creamy white and fuzzy.
You can eat the fuzzy flesh, but unlike yellow bananas, these contain numerous hard seeds.
Bite into one of those, and you’ll regret it.
13. Cactus Pear
The cactus, or prickly, pear almost looks like a spiny dragon fruit.
It’s approximately the same size, shape, and color, though it doesn’t have the green accents.
It requires some preparation to eat and tastes mildly sweet and somewhat bland.
Many people compare it to one of the milder melon varieties.
14. Pink Grapes
There are several varieties of pink grapes, including:
- Pink Muscatel Grapes
- Tickled Pink
- Flame Seedless
- Pink Reliance
- And More!!
Some are light pink, while others range nearly to purple or burgundy.
Each variety has its specific shade of pink, shape, scent, and taste.
Cotton candy grapes, on the other hand, are a variety of sweet-tasting green grapes.
(But seriously, doesn’t that name make them sound like they should be pink?!)
15. Pink Pearl Apples
Pink pearl apples are a unique variety that can be challenging to find.
They’re apple-shaped and have yellowish-green skin.
Unlike regular apples, however, their inner flesh is bright pink! It gives them a distinctive appearance that makes them super fun to eat.
They’re also sweetly tart and seriously crunchy.
Now, you might argue that peaches are peach-colored, not pink.
My rebuttal would be that peach-colored is a form of pink. So I think it’s okay to add them here.
Peaches are round, fuzzy fruits with peach-colored skin and white flesh. They’re incredibly juicy and tartly sweet.
They taste great on their own or baked into various peach desserts.
Quick! What’s green outside, pink inside, and 90% water? A watermelon, of course!
These fruits are a summertime staple, especially in the Southern U.S.
They’re mildly sweet, ridiculously juicy, and a childhood favorite for many.
Native to North America, coralberries are so bright pink that they almost don’t look real.
(Remember the Barbie Dream House? These would fit right in.)
Unfortunately, decorating a Barbie Dream House is really all they’re suitable for.
They contain saponin. It’s a toxic substance that can lead to nausea and vomiting if eaten in large amounts.
Besides that, they’re very bitter, so you wouldn’t like them, anyway.
19. Pink Blueberry
Pink blueberries are just what they sound like. And no, I’m not just talking about blueberries that look pink before fully ripening.
I’m talking about a specific type of blueberry.
Known as the pink lemonade blueberry, this blueberry stays pink even when ripe.
They have the same shape, size, and juiciness as their blue counterparts.
However, they’re more sugary and have an almost lemon-like flavor, hence, the name.
Though high in sugar and carbs, figs are a favorite fruit for many.
They have deep blueish-purple skins and reddish-pink insides.
They’re uniquely shaped like a teardrop and taste amazing.
They’re rich, sweet, and filling. You can eat them cooked or raw, in various recipes, or by themselves.
21. Pink Pineapple
Pink pineapples are pineapples with rosy pink flesh inside. They’re beautiful and fun, but not many people experience them.
They’re a genetic hybrid grown by a single grower in Costa Rica. And they take up to 2 years to fully develop!
If you want to showcase your wealth, now you know how. Serve an outrageously expensive pink pineapple at your next party.
22. Ōhelo ʻAi
These interesting Hawaiian berries look more like flowers than fruits.
They’re small, tart, and gorgeously pink. They’re also pretty good for you.
Most people say it tastes like its close relative, the cranberry.
They’re a popular choice for tarts, jams, chutneys, and other desserts.
Loganberries might be the happiest accident ever to occur in a horticulturist’s lab.
They’re the hybrid offspring of blackberries and raspberries.
And according to James Harvey Logan*, they’re better than both!
They look like raspberries, but their flavor is much brighter and more robust. They’re also juicier than either of their parent berries.
Like most berries, they’re healthy and make a good addition to smoothies, yogurt, etc.
*James Harvey Logan accidentally “created” loganberries in 1881.
Pomelos are like oversized grapefruits. They have orange outsides and pinkish-red flesh within.
They’re also juicy and initially sweet. However, like grapefruits, they have a slightly bitter aftertaste.
25. Pink Strawberries
I said I would stay away from strawberries because they’re more red than pink. That doesn’t include pink strawberries, though!
Technically, these bad boys are a type of white strawberry.
Wait, what are white strawberries, you ask?
They’re a mutation of the red berry we all know and love. And something growers all over the world have bred into some pretty impressive fruits.
Most are white, but there are some types with a stunning pink blush. And they’re incredibly juicy and sweet.
