The fruit bowl of life

The Greeks, or rather, one in particular, thought that everything was made of tiny, indivisible, building blocks called atomos. Different shape and size of atoms determined why things are bitter or white etc. He was surprisingly proven (almost) correct 2000 years later. Rather than needles and smooth atoms though, a lot is fruit-shaped. But how do we know that Democritus was not entirely correct?
