Easton's Bible Dictionary

Fruit:

a word as used in Scripture denoting produce in general, whether vegetable or animal. The Hebrews divided the fruits of the land into three classes:,

(1.) The fruit of the field, "corn-fruit" (Heb. dagan); all kinds of grain and pulse.

(2.) The fruit of the vine, "vintage-fruit" (Heb. tirosh); grapes, whether moist or dried.

(3.) "Orchard-fruits" (Heb. yitshar), as dates, figs, citrons, etc.

Injunctions concerning offerings and tithes were expressed by these Hebrew terms alone (Num 18:12; Deu 14:23). This word "fruit" is also used of children or offspring (Gen 30:2; Deu 7:13; Luk 1:42; Psa 21:10; 132:11); also of the progeny of beasts (Deu 28:51; Isa 14:29).

It is used metaphorically in a variety of forms (Psa 104:13; Pro 1:31; 11:30; 31:16; Isa 3:10; 10:12; Mat 3:8; 21:41; 26:29; Hbr 13:15; Rom 7:4,5; 15:28).

The fruits of the Spirit (Gal 5:22,23; Eph 5:9; Jam 3:17,18) are those gracious dispositions and habits which the Spirit produces in those in whom he dwells and works.
