What are the similarities and differences between an apple and orange?


Q. Describe similarities and differences between an apple and an orange, if any?


A. Other than the fact that apples and oranges are both fruits and they can be juiced, they don’t have much in common. Visually you can see the differences side-by-side on the outside and inside. They taste nothing alike and the texture of their inner flesh is much different from one another. They are both considered a fat-free food, but they do have nutritional differences. Apples contain more fiber, but oranges contain more vitamin C. For more information on how they differ in nutrient content review our quick nutrition chart for fruit.
