Rainbow Fruit Heart


  • Here's a list of the fruits by colour to help you with variety:
  • Red: red grapes raspberries, cherries, red currants, strawberries, pomegranate seeds, plums.
  • Orange: oranges apricots, cape gooseberries or physalis fruit, cantaloupe melon, honeydew melon.
  • Yellow: lemons star fruit, pineapple, canary melon.
  • Green: kiwi green grapes, limes, gooseberries.
  • Blue: black grapes blueberries, blackberries, figs.


  1. To create your heart shaped fresh fruit masterpiece, use a board with some parchment paper laid on top. Then, using a pencil, draw an outline of a heart to the size you want (or any shape desired).
  2. Then, have all the fruit you want to use at the side, already cut in halves, quarters, star-shaped or even left whole- be as creative as you like with the preparation of your fruits.
  3. Slowly start adding your fruit pieces into the heart shape starting at the top working your way down. Going from one colour to the next, layering as you go.
