Hi Latee2t,

Here's some info that should help:

Variables are factors that can be changed in an experiment.

The independent variable is the one that is changed in the experiment.

The dependent variable is the one that changes as a result of the change in the independent variable.

So we don't have a lot of information about your experiment, but it seems that the type of fruit is the independent variable.

Hope this helps - Kat

An independent variable is usually the variable in place of the value being influenced, controlled or changed. The name came up because the variable is isolated or secluded from any other factor, allowing experimental management to set up analyzable results.

For example, an experiment to test the effects of the amount of water, upon plant growth, could measure height, number of fruits and the average weight of the fruit produced. All of these are valid analyzable factors, arising from the manipulation of one independent variable, the amount of water.
