Fruit ProvenanceThis list of fruits has been taken from "List of culinary fruits" on Wikipedia and "List of fruits" on Simple English Wikipedia. I've removed fruits that were only listed with a scientific name (no common name), and a fruit that contained digits. This pared down list contains 766 fruits in total.

As Wikipedia pages are prone to change over time, the list presented in this challenge is the only one that will be used for validating answers.

Input

  • There is no input for this challenge

Output

  • Exactly 55 fruits from the list, no more or less
  • The same fruits in the same order every time (your output must be deterministic)
  • The 55 fruits must be distinct
    • You must not include apple twice
    • You may include apple, custard apple, and apple berry - fruits containing or overlapping with other fruits is not a problem
  • You may output the fruits in a data structure of your choice, such as a list, array, or vector, but each individual fruit must be a string
  • If you choose to output a single string that contains the 55 fruits separated by a delimiter, the delimiter must be consistent (the same delimiter between each consecutive pair of fruits), non-alphanumeric (not a letter or digit), and must not be present in any of the 55 fruits
    • For example, if one of your 55 fruits is miracle fruit then you must not use a space as the delimiter, and if one of your 55 fruits is tamarind-plum then you must not use a hyphen as the delimiter
  • Each of your 55 fruits must be exactly as it appears in the list of all fruits
    • The spelling must be identical (no regional variations - only the particular spelling shown in the list - so wooly jelly palm fruit, not woolly jelly palm fruit)
    • Any punctuation must be identical, including spaces, hyphens, or apostrophes
    • All diacritics are required, so for example acai is not a valid fruit for this challenge - it must be açaí. If using diacritics is not possible in your language of choice, you will need to choose fruits that are diacritic-free

Scoring

Despite the "choose your own output" aspect of this challenge, this is a standard code golf challenge - your score is the number of bytes in your code.

Although your score is based solely on your competing code that outputs the 55 fruits, it would also be interesting to see any additional code that you might have used to help you choose which 55 fruits to work with. This is entirely optional - only your competing code is required.

Note: if your language of choice requires more than 1 byte to represent a letter with a diacritic, be aware that your score is specifically in bytes, not characters.

Explanations in answers are optional, but I'm more likely to upvote answers that have one.

Originally, I was going to use zlib, but trying to use the encoded result as a literal gave a lot of issues, so I decided to use base85 instead. There are probably some optimizations I missed since I don't really do Python often enough.

Just a compressed string, decompressed by the backtick at the beginning, that uses space as a delimiter.

Test it
(or view the list sorted, with newline as a delimiter here)

How I came by it

  1. Remove fruits containing Unicode characters.
  2. Remove fruits containing spaces.
  3. Remove "rimu", because it contains a \ when compressed.
  4. Sort by compressed length.
  5. Get first 55, as an array.
  6. Run that array through my interpreter's built-in compressor.
  7. Manually replace the last fruit in the compressed string ("ilama") with the manually compressed string "rimu".

This is the program I used to generate it:

It simply checks for fruits with no Unicode characters, and then finds the 55 fruits with the shortest dictionary compression.

I used a similar Vyxal program linked in my Vyxal answer, but instead of checking for the shortest dictionary compression, just looked for the 55 shortest fruits.

This works by representing berry, (including the comma) as B. This means every fruit that ends in "berry" can effectively save 5 bytes. It turns out there are enough berries to make the 22 byte cost of replace worthwhile.

This is the 55 shortest fruits measuring length after substituting "berry," with "B". I generated the code using this code: Try it online!

My initial failed attempts

Before I found this approach I tried shortening the other two Python 3 answers, but in both cases my misguided efforts only made the code longer...

Trying to shorten steffan153's answer

I noticed that some of the fruits had diacritics, which makes them longer in bytes than they appear, so instead of just using the 55 shortest fruit by characters, I used the 55 shortest fruit after throwing away any fruit with diacritics, like gấc and açaí. However, since we've already used up all of the fruit of length 5 bytes or less, each diacritic fruit removed brings in another 6 byte fruit, so the total length of the code went up by a byte:

print('fig abiu bael date lime lulo neem noni pear pili plum rimu sloe sorb yuzu ackee akebi apple araza cacao caqui carob etrog grape guava ilama jagua kokum kubal lemon mango melon mundu musho nance ooray peach pequi pluot prune pudau rowan rukam salak salal tapia terap tilap toyon wongi almond babaco bacuri banana bignay')

Trying to shorten Moshi's answer

I thought I could save some bytes by using fewer distinct characters in the list of fruits, since all of these need to be listed in the while loop that extracts the data. So I repeatedly found the letter present in fewest fruits, and discarded all fruits containing that letter, stopping short of ending up with fewer than 55 fruits remaining. This left me with only 14 distinct characters, down from 16 in the original code. However, the 2 bytes this saved were overwhelmed by the fact that the new list of 55 fruits contained longer fruits, since I'd discarded some of the shorter ones, leaving the code 14 bytes longer:

from base64 import*
n=int.from_bytes(b85decode('5YBr@2zdh)fdaH`|L?o31mzCMMOw^}6Gp}*cGPdkWp!!fj9sk(ll2zIiI9x(m!Z#)4FT|UW1Q!@&rHc#p7PfklqbhsG`5TO^jF^L@qmX-@zKRADY>W*()(`#6^w=;IP9xHTgMq6GED;7>E#S9WNiB|2eKZ!HJ!qD(`e}qPwt+~b^KgJISyhSv!lv?ba68XFLI3{>}kf^>gaG928Ym{URfadB71USJH9{@PJ;Ya'),'big')
while n:print(end="ambling poetry"[n%14]);n//=14

Try it online!


In hindsight I have no idea why I thought either of my initial approaches would work.
