In English it's not Fruits but Fruit whereas in Spanish it's Frutas
albaricoque / apricot
compota de manzana o puré de manzana / applesauce
fresas / strawberries
guayaba / guava ( have no clue what this is)
limón / lemon
macedonia de fruta o coctel de frutas / fruit cocktail
manzana / apple
melocotón / peach
mirtilos / blueberries
naranja / orange
pera / pear
piña / pineapple
sandía / waterlemon
toronja / grapefruit
Anyone know what a guava is in English?
And there's banana as we know them and then plátanos have to be cooked.
Let me know if you see any spelling mistakes and keep adding mas frutas.

Guava is guava in english.
I've got another couple for the list as well
Sorry what I meant to say is what the heck is a guava? Never heard of it unless it's called something else.

Thanks mofi. I'll have to see if I can find them. I like trying new fruit and vegetables.
I am not sure where you live. You live in canada right? Well they sell them out here on the west coast at Save-On-Foods, but i guess that doesn't help unless you live in BC.
It might be helpful to note the pronounciation for folks who are just learning. For example, uvas = oo vas or naranja = nah ran ha
Just a thought.
Cuidate (qwee dat tay)
What might be more helpful is to teach teh vowel sounds, because most spanish words sound like the read as long as you remember the vowel sounds.

Well, it is cereza for cherry.
Also you can add:
aguacate - avocado
lechoza - papaya
mango is the same in both languages
melón is a generic term for various melons (canteloupe, honeydew, etc)
Also, platanos in English would be plantains. What we know as a banana is called a guineo.
china is more used in the DR for orange then naranja.
chinola, what is that one again?
limoncillo = similar to lichees, those green little things they sell on the beach
mamey = no idea how you translate that
