Be careful with spelling!

Please note the spelling of some of the plural forms of the fruits above (e.g., "y" changes to "i"  before you add "es":  cherry - cherries).

Speaking of spelling, check out this humorous experience I had ordering juice while in Istanbul, Turkey.

Are these really fruits or vegetables?

In American English, we often describe some of these fruits as "vegetables" (e.g., tomato, avocado, eggplant) but they are actually fruits.

According to botany (the study of plants), fruits and vegetables are categorized by the part of the plant they come from. A fruit has a seed that comes from the ovary of the flowering plant. Vegetables come from the roots, bulbs, leaves and stems of the plant.


Practice this new vocabulary

Which of these are your favorites? Is it easy to get fresh fruits where you live? Which fruits have you  never tried?

To practice, pull out a piece of paper and write a few paragraphs to practice this vocabulary (this will help you remember the words more easily). You could also practice by speaking out loud to yourself or with a speaking partner.

And, as noted above, you can practice by doing fun vocabulary puzzles by downloading the free ebook.
