When eating this "fruit" you may also be eating dead wasps... name that "fruit".

A) Fig
B) Grapefruit
C) Dragonfruit
D) Kiwi

The answer is A, a fig. A fig, believe it or not, is actually an inverted flower which means that it has to be pollinated from the inside. The small wasps that pollinate the fig sometimes get stuck inside due to the small entrance found on the fig snapping off their wings. Most figs we eat self pollinate however... there may be the occasional wasp body in there.
