>>18021332Pomegranate is called Garantäpple (Grenade Apple) in swedish>>18021570hoves seems similar to huvud(head) IDK what pikmeans but Im guessing penis bc ig that would be funny
>>18021332Erdapfel (ground apple) is used in some parts of Germany too. Most Germans will call it Kartoffel which in itself sounds kind of funny.
>>18021540nutmeg is indian walnut here
>>18021652Persian walnut for us.
>>18021547You Low Germans never cease to amaze me
>>18021332In dutch we call this ground apple or apple of the earth
>>18021591Actually "grenade" comes from "pomegranate" because early grenades looked like pomegranates.
>>18021332i fuck the french in their rotten mouths

>>18023751>Flarnlel thats irish for leaky shart.
>>18021332If 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.
>>18021332Do real apples not come from the ground? It thought that's how all the non-meat food worked.
>>18023987Apples come from a tree...
>>18023988Apple trees have wide root systems which absorb high amounts of microplastics from water and soil contamination.
>>18023995Have 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.
>>18024003No, 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.>inb4 "hurrr, citation needed...!"It's more genuine when you put in the effort to learn for yourself, but I'm not lying.
>>18023918Thanks, I'll remember that and wrote it down. What other kind of shart is there except for a leaky one?
>>18023988What'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.
>>18023995>>18024003Trees absorb most of the matter they use to grow from the air
Golden apple in Italian. From the French pomme d'or, who brought yellow cherry tomatoes to southern Italy as an ornamental plant.

>>18021548i think the first time i saw this i laughed out loud for like 10 minutes, struggling to breathe.
Turkey (the bird) is called “dinde” in France. It means “From India” (D’Inde).
>>18024382Not 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.
>>18021332Walnuts and/or Chestnuts are called nigger toes by old people here, at least the non-black ones
>>18024382in Sweden it's called "kalkon", apparently picked up from the dutch whom got their version from the name of the city Calicut
>>18021332Same for german (Erdapfel) and Polish (Ziemniak/ jabłko ziemne).Pic related are "fruits of th sea" (Meeresfrüchte).
>>18021332Same for the Dutch aardappel. Aard(e) = ground/earth, appel = appleSame goes for Jerusalem artichoke (aardpeer), peer = pearAlso 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)
>>18024532Fishes are no Meeresfrüchte though.

>>18021547>cucumber in norwegian is agurk>cucumber in swedish is gurka
>>18025765its melon, comes from greek.
>>18024547>loanword from spanishItalian.
>>18025784No. Peponi is melon in Greek. Cucumber is anguri.>>18025765In 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.
>>18026085Ancient greek> from Byzantine Greek ἀγγούριον (angoúrion, “melon”)
>>18026094That's nice, dear.
>>18021332eastern German people in the Ore Mountains call them the same funnily enough.

>>18023995Apple root systems aren't wide at all. Most of the shit they absorb is from the air like someone else said.
>>18021332I 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.
>>18024435Troot troot? Why do your turkeys have such a ridiculous accent compared to American turkeys
>>18024587Soo what's your obsession with nun ass?
"Air" means "water" in Indonesian. Nickelodeon's Avatar is very confusing to Indonesian-Americans.>the last water bender? but there's a water bender RIGHT FUCKING THERE!
Welsh people eat morons. Pic related. It's a moron.
>>18024162In the USA we know we can play around with mach 8+ little things and not be seen.
>>18024146Same in polish. Pomidor
>>18026166welsh seems somewhat related to swedish then, this tickles my semi-functional autismin swedish carrot is morot
>>18026428Maybe they can go after some brussels sprouts
>>18026424That'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.>>18026428You 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.
>>18024146An old English name for tomatoes is 'love apples'
>>18021548This takes me back
>>18026428I felt really bad when I realized that Welsh Rarebit had no rabbit in it. I find that deceptive and there should be a warning on the label including may induce weird dreams and sleep walking.
>>18023988Crab apples come from baby crabs likely gotten from your mom.
