Fruits such as apple or pears


Argentinean Spanish
Hello! everybody
I know a Spanish term which involves this kind of fruits, we say: frutas de pepita.
How do you classify them?
and also how do you classify peachs, apricots, plums...(frutas de hueso o carozo)?
Thank you!!!

    Hi Urki,

    "Frutas de hueso" would be "stone fruit" or "stonefruit", but I'm not sure about "frutas de pepita", "fruits with pits" perhaps?

    Best regards! :)

    Apples and pears are defined as pipfruit and peaches and plums as stonefruit or drupes technically. The pit of a fruit is the stone (hueso) as in a plum and is different from the pips (pepitas) of an apple or pear. Hope that helps rather than confuses!
