    Default kind of

    Are these correct?

    Malu is a kind of Maori cracker
    Malu is a kind of Maori crackers
    Apple is a kind of fruit?
    Apple is a kind of fruits?

    Does a plural follow after "kind of"

    Then
    I'm wondering if I have to pluralize the noun.

    Apples are a kind of fruit?
    Apples are kinds of fruit?
    Apples are kinds of fruits?

    If I don't use kind of and just say

    Malu is a Maori cracker. Is this ok too?

    If I want to say Malu is delicious, using a pronoun

    Should I say
    They are delicious or It's delicious.
    Malu does have an s so should it be singluar


    thank you
