Everything foreign is either Indian or Turkish to us.

Guinea pigs? Indian piglets.
Corn/maiz? Turkish wheat.
Turkey (the bird)?Turkish chicken.
Arrowroot? Indian reed.

Erdapfel (ground apple) is used in some parts of Germany too. Most Germans will call it Kartoffel which in itself sounds kind of funny.

Actually "grenade" comes from "pomegranate" because early grenades looked like pomegranates.

If you watch the movie Tom Brown's School Days, all the kids are crazy for a jacket potato shop. They call the potatoes Murphys.

Its important to understand that "apple" was simply the word for any kind of fruit, so potatoes weren't compared with the apples we know today, but simply a non-descript name for a new kind of food.
>>
>>18021332
Do real apples not come from the ground? It thought that's how all the non-meat food worked.
>>
>>18023987
Apples come from a tree...
>>
>>18023988
Apple trees have wide root systems which absorb high amounts of microplastics from water and soil contamination.
>>
>>18023995
Have you actually tested an apple to know for sure, or are you just pulling this information out of your ass? Like most people on this board tend to do.
>>
>>18024003
No, that's a pretty common fact. Tree fruits and root vegetables are the most common dietary source of microplastics. People freaking out over plastic packaging and containers are the retarded reactionaries.

Thanks, I'll remember that and wrote it down. What other kind of shart is there except for a leaky one?
>>
>>18023988
What's the point of having a tree if potatoes can just cut out the middle man and pop out of the ground directly? Apples seem like a waste of time.

Golden apple in Italian. From the French pomme d'or, who brought yellow cherry tomatoes to southern Italy as an ornamental plant.

Turkey (the bird) is called “dinde” in France. It means “From India” (D’Inde).
>>
>>18024382
Not that stupid if you consider the turkey came from "west india". I mean the caribbean islands are still called by that name.
Here in Germany we call the turkey Truthahn/Truthuhn because of the noises they make (troot troot) so they translate to troot chicken/rooster/hen.

in Sweden it's called "kalkon", apparently picked up from the dutch whom got their version from the name of the city Calicut
>>
>>18021332
Same for german (Erdapfel) and Polish (Ziemniak/ jabłko ziemne).

Pic related are "fruits of th sea" (Meeresfrüchte).
>>
>>18021332
Same for the Dutch aardappel. Aard(e) = ground/earth, appel = apple

Same goes for Jerusalem artichoke (aardpeer), peer = pear

Also a carrot is called a wortel (lit. ''root'') or a peen, which is fun if you pronounce it in English. Black salsifies are called ''schorseneren'' which is apparently a loanword from Spanish 'scorza nera' (black bark)
>>
>>18024532
Fishes are no Meeresfrüchte though.

Italian.

No. Peponi is melon in Greek. Cucumber is anguri.

>>18025765
In most of Italy, cocomero, an obvious cognate of cucumber, means "watermelon" while cucumber itself is called "cetriolo." In my part of the country, which used to speak Greek regularly and still has strong Greek influence in our dialect of Italian, watermelon is "anguria," cognate with the Greek for cucumber and cucumber is "cocomero." We're a strange fucking country.

Apple root systems aren't wide at all. Most of the shit they absorb is from the air like someone else said.

I can't tell whether were talking about actual foods here or the ingredients but I use to think the name "patatas" was sort off funny when I was a kid. Now it justs sounds sort off cute, something you would call a girl with fluffy cheeks.

That's because Bona Sforza of Italy married Sigismund of Poland and brought cooks with her to Krakow. Ever wonder why you call vegetarian bouillon "Italian?" Now you know.

>>18026428
You should see the Welsh word for 'banana.' Banana in French, Italian, German, Swedish, Russian, Uyghur, Mongolian, Albanian, Greek, Turkish, Irish, Icelandic, Romany etc is always some cognate of 'banana.' But not in Welsh. Not in Welsh.

Apples used to taste roughly like potatoes and weren't edible unless cooked prior to centuries of selective breeding. So maks sense.
