Question:

How many types of each fruit are there in Paradise?

Answer:

Wa alaykum assalam wa rahmatullahi wa barakatuh,

Dear questioner,

Thank you for your important question.

No, you were right in saying that there seventy types of each from in Paradise. Ibn Kathir mentions it in his work al-Bidayah wa al-Nihayah.

That said, as a general tack one should only quote something when one is reasonably sure that it is the case.

All of us are ignorant and all of us make mistakes. That said, truth is something respected indeed, and religious truth is even more respected.

In view of this, if we misquote Islam, such as quoting a hadith that is not a hadith, or explaining something to do with the Sacred Law that is not accurate, we must make amends by correcting this misinformation. [Tashnif al-Masami, Zarkashi; Rawdat al-Talibin, Nawawi]

I pray this helps.
