Checking if variable exists

Is there a way to check if a variable exists:

fruit = apple

so that when it checks for fruit it returns True but when it checks for vegatable it returns False

Hey there, would you like to specify which language you’re using? (It’ll help giving a more specific answer)

Possible solution: (Assuming that you’re using python)

if 'fruit' globals():
  print('The fruit variable exists!')
  print('The fruit variable doesnt exist!')

NOTE: This method is considered bad practice and should generally be avoided.
NOTE 2: This won’t work if you’re checking a local variable.

Oh i thought i put it on there sorry Python

ok thanks @MNA41 that’ll work
