FRUIT (Heb. perî, Gr. karpos). The fruits most often mentioned in Scripture are the grape, pomegranate, fig, olive, and apple; all of which are grown today; but the lemon, orange, plum, and apricot were unknown or at least unmentioned. The word “fruit” is often used metaphorically: “the fruit of your womb” (Deut.7.13), “the fruit of their schemes” (Prov.1.31). The fruit of the Holy Spirit consists of all the Christian virtues (Gal.5.22-Gal.5.23).
