Fruit is a big hit after a meal, especially when you are dinning with your family and guests. A fruit platter complements a full course treat. It is a delicious and beautiful serving where a large dish is decorated with various fresh fruits arranged in a pattern. There are some methods which can be followed to make the fruit platter perfect fit for an occasion. The serving bowl, in which the fruits are served, must be a simple one. Always remember that a simple and soft color highlights the fruits the most. Select ripe and firm fruits with rich aroma, and wash and dry the fruits properly before making the preparation. Fruits like apples, melons, berries, grapes, plums, apricots and kiwi go well for the best fruit platter. Not choosing soft fruits like Fuji, bananas, pears or peaches would be a wise decision as these fruits discolor quickly. All fruits should have individual place in the platter so that it gains a uniform appearance. Sprinkle mint leaves and other ingredients to garnish the fruit platter.
