  Nelly ft. St Lunatics | “Ride Wit Me” | 2000    MEYER LEMONS   are a hybrid between a lemon and a mandarin orange. Unfortunately due to the drought, all lemon varieties are extremely limited. California grows 91% of the country’s lemons and the long-lasting drought has doubled their usual cost. Today, all varieties of lemons are the most expensive they’ve ever been since the Bureau of Stats have been tracking the fruit since 1980. It costs $50 for a case of 165 lemons ($30-$35 standard price). For small/local restaurants it’s extremely time consuming and costly to quickly revise their menus. Bars are also very reliant on this fruit for garnishing and flavouring. Lemons are a basic staple in cooking & drink mixing.  Dependant AF.  No. 022/100

  Snoop Dogg | “Who I am (What’s My Name)” | 1993   Cultivated first in Belgium and Northern France during the 17th century, the  REDCURRANT  are a tiny bright red translucent berry slightly smaller than a blueberry. A variety of cultivars spread wild across Europe extending to Asia. Grapes and raisins top the list for the most poisonous fruits for dogs but the redcurrant is equally as dangerous with the same levels of toxicity. Toxic AF 🐶🐶🐶  No. 063/100

  Missy Elliott | “Work It” | 2002   Low in sugar and high in healthy (monounsaturated) fat,  AVOCADOS  are👌👌👌. Eaten or smothered on as a face mask, this fruit is great for keeping skin soft and hydrated. Avocados contain nearly 20 vitamins & minerals and known as the darling of the produce section. This fruit is also known to contribute to strong shiny 💇 and 💅’s. Overall a solid food AND beauty product making you sexy AF.   No. 006/100

  Bell Biv DeVo | “Poison” | 1990    DAPHNE BERRIES  are extremely toxic. You’ll apparently experience choking sensations if you eat the fruit, while its twigs and bark can cause rashing and eczema. Only fruit-eating birds are immune to them. Such a pretty name, Daphne, but that girl is poison AF 💊💊💊🔪🔪🔪   No. 034/100

  Chamillionaire ft. Krayzie Bone | “Ridin’ Dirty” | 2005   Ridin’ dirty,  MANGOSTEENS  were a contraband fruit, illegal in the United States. Native to the Sunda and Moluccas islands of Indonesia, mangosteens are grown and found in Southeast Asia and tropical countries like Colombia. The deep purple rind is extremely thick, but once sliced, inside are five perfectly white sectioned slices of fruit. Mangosteens have been available in Canada but because of a belief the fruit harboured a particular fruit fly they became illegal in the US. Dirty AF no more as the ban has been lifted.   No. 046/100

  Big Sean ft.

Unfortunately the raspberry-like berry and and its vines grow abundantly. Despite being an edible fruit, the Japanese wineberry is notoriously known as the most invasively growing fruit in North America and one of the most unwanted plants “bullying” native and proper plants out of their respective landscape.

  Blahzay Blahzay | “Danger” | 1993   All parts of the yew plant are toxic to humans, while the  YEW BERRY  itself causes headaches, lethargy, aches, itching, skin rashing that leads to trembling, staggering, coldness, weak pulse to collapsing. The fruit looks like a red olive where its seed is found protruding from its hollow center. Its the seed in the berry and every part of the plant that is highly toxic. Additionally the poison does not die away when the plant dies. Branches, leaves and bark, if strewn or pruned, are still poisonous. As few as three berries can cause the above symptoms. Dangerous AF ❗️❗️❗️  No. 051/100

This Southern China native fruit has a large brown seed in the middle of its translucent white juicy meat, referenced as the dragon’s pupil 👀 👀 👀 In Chinese medicine they’re eaten as a blood tonic, building energy, Qi. To peel and open longan, pinch its thin brown/yellow shell with your index finger and thumb.
