Fruits & Veggies

Posted by alexlexilu July 15, 2010 in the Group General Discussion.

Hi everyone... I made this list of fruits and veggies that I posted on the Elementary lesson this week and I got a bit of feedback (which was great by the way) but I was hoping for more feedback so I decided to post it again. I am trying to come up with a good list of fruits and veggies... there are always a bunch that I can't remember and I thought it would be good to make a list.

Could you help correct / add to it?? A dictionnary is not always the best tool to find these kind of things.

Thanks, I think it might be useful to bring to the market!
