Compare 1st column from 2 file and if match print line from 1st file and append column 7 from 2nd

hi


I have 2 file with more than 10 columns for both



1st file

Code:
apple,0,0,0......
orange,1,2,3.....
mango,2,4,5.....

2nd file
Code:
apple,2,3,4,5,6,7...
orange,2,3,4,5,6,8...
watermerlon,2,3,4,5,6,abc...
mango,5,6,7,4,6,def....

I want to match the first column of both file and if it matches, print the whole line from 1st file and append 7th column from 2nd file to it for everyline so it becomes like this


Code:
apple,0,0,0......7
orange,1,2,3.....8
mango,2,4,5.....def


Any help would be much appreciated
