A fruit bowl holds and displays fruit, usually unpeeled fresh fruit, before you serve it to your guests or family. Fruit bowls are often made of wood, glass, or other materials, and are usually large enough to accommodate collections of citrus, apples, bananas, and other fruits.
Fruit bowls can be plain and simple or fancy and ornate. Fancier types are often of cut or coloured glass, sometimes with elaborate decorations. Other fruit bowl models feature a deliberately rustic look.
