There are thousands of different kinds of fruits produced around the world. They are sources of many types of nutrients essential for health and also for the economy. In the literature there are many studies on the most different fruits about their composition, nutritional characteristics, cultivation, storage, processing and applications. There is also a wide variety of fruits according to the region and the climate in which they are produced. Often the knowledge of certain types of fruit are restricted to the region where they are grown. Encouraging the dissemination of knowledge about fruits on a global scale is a major challenge that needs to be done. This special issue aims to publish articles related to technological, biotechnology and nutrition applications in a variety of fruits, highlighting the potential use and the regional aspects of all kinds of fruit.
