You’re more likely to eat fruit when it’s in a pretty bowl, right?

fruit bowl

We can only assume that having a beautiful fruit bowl means you eat mountains of fruit and become a picture of health, so here are our favourite picks. 


In our pursuit of glowing skin and a spring in our step, we all know we should eat more fruit. And whatever your choice of fruit is: bananas, apples, kiwis, dragonfruit – chances are it should live in a fruit bowl.

“There’s apples in the fruit bowl”, I can almost hear my mother say to me as I rummage in the cupboard for (decidedly non-fruit-containing) snacks. Except I don’t actually own a fruit bowl, instead choosing to shove any fruit in the back of the fridge, where it’s often forgotten, and usually a little on the wrinkly side.

It, of course, makes more sense to keep your fruit in a bowl on the counter, but if, like me, this is something you just haven’t gotten around to ever buying, there’s plenty of lovely options out there (and who doesn’t love an excuse to buy a nice bowl?)

fruit bowl

Made in Portugal from glazed stoneware, this bowl features a delicate pressed pattern. Available in three colours, you can also choose the shade that will suit your kitchen best, or even the fruit you’re most likely to fill it with. Old Havana serving bowl, €42, Anthropologie

fruit bowl

Wood is a classic option for a fruit bowl, and we love this acacia one from H&M. Its natural tones and texture will add a relaxed feel to your kitchen. As it’s not ceramic, it’s also a great option if you have kids – less chance of breakages, although there’s no guarantee they’ll actually eat the fruit inside. Large wooden bowl, €39.99, H&M.

Another non-ceramic option, this enamel version from Hay adds a pop of colour. There’s also a whole range of cook and serveware to match, so you can co-ordinate your whole kitchen in its bright, speckled glory. Enamel bowl, €27, Industry & Co.

fruit bowl

With its irregular edge and abstract pattern, this bowl is great for adding some personality to your space. Its colourful design will look great, even if there’s just one spotty banana left in the bottom (not that I would ever let that happen). Large abstract stoneware bowl, €34, Oliver Bonas.

Perfect for those who love a simple finish, this Stephen Pearce design is handmade, with this wonderfully irregular glaze contrasting against the earthy tones of the ceramic. Small decorated bowl, €45.50, Shanagarry Potters.
