    Vocabulary: all about fruits

    Whether they were eaten raw, or cooked, fruits have always composed human beings' diets. Before becoming cultivators and then hunters, men were pickers.

    Some fruits are available to consumption throughout the year. In our latitudes, they are reaped in season and kept and stored to prevent them from rotting. The only real problem being that eating ripe fruits is exceptional, especially in the districts where they aren't produced. 

    A large variety : Basics

            A  banana=> bananas           An orange => oranges        An apple => Apples

    Some fruits have stones ( generally a big one, most of the time, it is proportional to their sizes. ) : apricots, peaches, nectarines, plums, cherries, mangoes... 

                A cherry => cherries.              An apricot=> apricots   Different varieties of plums
              Peaches                     A Mango / Mangoes   
                 An avocado 

    Others have pips or seeds which are equally indispensable to reproduction: oranges, tangerines, grapefruits, ( all of them citrus fruits), apples, pears, grapes, pomegranates, melons, watermelons, without forgetting tomatoes. 


                  Several varieties of pears        

               A pomegranate

    Some are 'berries and currants'

                A strawberry => Strawberries       A raspberry => raspberries      A blackberry => blackberries
                       Blueberries    Bilberries (a variety of Blueberries)        Gooseberries (Yuk!)
                     Redcurrants                   Whitecurrants             Blackcurrants 

    Those are  citrus fruits  (add oranges)          

                   A Lemon          A Grapefruit                      A Lime 

    The so called 'exotic fruits' + bananas + pineapples.

                    a melon                         a watermelon                      a litchi

    When I said we had quite a variety...   Let's hope you won't mix their names... especially your berries!
