I am a pure vegetarian and wanted to know which fruits and vegetables i can eat to increase hemoglobin content in my body?

It depends...: This depends on whether you are deficient in iron, B12 or folate (folic acid); if so, then increasing your levels will increase hemoglobin; if not then it won't make a difference.
