    Default Frutas (Fruit)

    In English it's not Fruits but Fruit whereas in Spanish it's Frutas




    albaricoque / apricot
    cereza /cherries
    ciruela /plum
    compota de manzana o puré de manzana / applesauce
    franbuesas /raspberries
    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
    plátano/ banana
    sandía / waterlemon
    toronja / grapefruit
    uvas/ grapes

    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.

    Sorry what I meant to say is what the heck is a guava? Never heard of it unless it's called something else.

    Anyone have a picture?

    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.

    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.
    A-Ah E-Eh I-E O-O U-uw.......kinda like that. It's easier to say then it is to write the 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.
