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.

Apples come from a tree...

Apple trees have wide root systems which absorb high amounts of microplastics from water and soil contamination.

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.

>> No.18024012

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.

Not that stupid if you consider the turkey came from "west india". I mean the caribbean islands are still called by that name.

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

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.

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.
