    All fruits have been around for MILLIONS of years. How did you get to be so stupid?

    where? here in the Uk, there were lots of varieties of apples, pears, plumbs, apricots, peaches, cherries, strawberries, raspberries. these would be grown and sold in season. blackberries often grew wild and could be picked for free form hedgerows etc. apples could be storied in straw and last through the winter with care. other season fruits might be bottled or made into preserves. MOre exotic fruits were growin in hothouses or imported from abroad and were very expensive, like oranges, grapes, pineapples, etc. taht is why children often got an orange in their Christmas stockings, because for most ordinary people an orange was a treat, not something to eat everyday. YOu wouldn't get the lavish display of fruits all year round that you get in greengrocer so nowadays.

    Most of the types of fruit that exist now already existed in the 1800s (not all: a number of berries and citrus fruits have been created by hybridisation since). But many of them only existed in their native habitat, and wouldn't have been available all over the world as they are now.

    Only apples and mangosteens. The rest were all created in labs around 1972.

    The same that that exist now - a person might never eat an orange, though, who lived in Michigan because the don't grow there and shipping produce around the country was not as easily accomplished.
