    Bulbapedia has this information, as pulled from different names/translations used in-game around the world. The real life fruit/veg reference is on each individual Berry page. (go to the #Names section, eg: bulbapedia.bulbagarden.net/wiki/Aspear_Berry#Names). I don't see how that is "speculation on the Developer's intent" as per the current close reason. – Robotnik Oct 7 '20 at 5:36

    Yeah, really confused why this is closed - seems a straightforward question to me. – Joe Oct 7 '20 at 18:25

Yago berry is a bitter melon. Kuo berry is Okra, etc. There are some berries which have no English name, in that case they are translations. To get the full list, check Bulbapedia's page on Berries.
