an apple a day

keeps the doctor away

fake or truth?


mandarins and satsumas

sunny mini-oranges

plums become prunes,

pitted and dried,

swell up inside turkey

yellow and green

lemons and tangy limes

sour the tongue

Yellow bananas –

eat them, use green for cooking.

Ripe ones are freckled.
