7. Maqui Berry
Maqui berry is a small berry fruit, and the interesting point of it is to harvest from nature more than being grown from the farm.
This fruit has the same taste as blackberry and is naturally sweet and refreshing. Besides that, people also use the leaves and stems of Maqui as a precious medicine to treat diarrhea, fevers, diabetes, etc.
Based on the color when it ripens, Mulberry, the general name of berry fruit, will be divided into many other kinds, such as white, red, and black mulberries.

I believe that you have eaten one kind of Mulberry before and feel the refined, sweet taste.

Mammee apple (Mammea Americana) is a fruit type that relates to the Mangosteen. Many people like this “M” fruit because of its sweetness and softness when ripening.
However, the juice in the seed can stick to your hand and cause uncomfortable feelings, so you should be careful while eating.

The differences between Mock strawberry and a wild one are the flower’s colors and the tastes.
Instead of the white flowers of the wild strawberry, the Mock ones develop with yellow flowers. Moreover, many people suppose that the taste of it is less sweet than the wild strawberry.
Marionberry begins with the letter “M” in the name, a successful breeding program between Chehalem and Olallieberry types.
