# Enumerated list with headings / titles

I need an enumerated list that has titles like the description environment. I'v looked at the enumitem package but I'm not sure if / how I can use it for the desired effect. I want the list to look like this:

1. Apples
Apples are red, and contain iron.
2. Bananans
Bananas are yellow and contain potassium.

You can create a command that acts like \item[description title]:

\newcommand\descitem[1]{\item{\bfseries #1}\\}


You can remove the \\ if you don’t want a line break. The style of the title is easy to change.

Your enumerate environment will look like:

\begin{enumerate}
\descitem{Apples} Apples are red, and contain iron.
\descitem{Bananas} Bananas are yellow and contain potassium.
\end{enumerate}

• Wow Thanks!I thought I'd need to modify the enumitem templates. – kabZX May 2 '16 at 10:36
