I am having trouble explaining the plural of fruit to my Korean students. Fruit is an irregular verb right? So it is unnesessary to add an," s " to fruit, correct?
Hope this help:
Some ‘fruit’ and ‘fruits’
Fruit can be either countable or uncountable and has two plural forms; fruit and fruits. Consequently, we can say; I eat fruit everyday, or I eat fruits everyday. Another example would be "How much fruit did you eat?" or "How many fruits did you eat?" Hope this helps....
There is a verb 'to fruit' and it is regular. 'That tree usually fruits every every year, but this year it hasn't fruited.
or bear/yield fruit
Is "to fruit" commonly used where you are? To me, it sounds like that line in Mrs. Doubtfire about a "drive-by fruiting" which means "you hurl fruit at someone."
