    $\begingroup$ This seems to be a "guess what I am thinking" puzzle. Multiple solutions would work but we have to find out which one you thought of. $\endgroup$

Building off of Logan's answer:

The missing fruit is

kiwifruit (also known as kiwi)


We can think of this puzzle in analogy format (apple : banana :: jackfruit : ?).
Some of the analogues we see include:
1) Cross sections: Apples and jackfruits have prominent cores and seeds, whereas bananas and kiwis have very small seeds scattered around the center.
2) Words/letters: The letters b and k follow a and j in the alphabet, and both jackfruit and kiwifruit have "fruit" in their names.
3) Colors: Perhaps a bit of a stretch, but both apples and jackfruits can come in red (red apple, Thai red jackfruit) and green colors (green apple, standard jackfruit), while both bananas and kiwifruits can come in green (unripe banana, standard kiwi) and yellow colors (ripe banana, golden kiwi).


My guess is


I am thinking colour rather than fruit.

Is it kiwi? I think it might be in alphabet order. A for Apple then B for Banana. But, the next one is a jackfruit after j is k. So, kiwi?

  • $\begingroup$ You're on the right track, but there's another reason why it might be kiwi $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ Is it because the colors of the fruition the inside are different from the outside? $\endgroup$ Mar 14 at 18:38

  • $\begingroup$ Are you sure colors don't matter? In snooker the colors go red yellow green then brown. That's why it's kiwi...actually coconuts are brown. $\endgroup$ Mar 14 at 19:19
