Which fruit name ends with BEANS

Small fruit and vegetable dictionary

Austrian - German - Swiss

If an Austrian cooks cabbage, there is cabbage in Germany. If, on the other hand, an Austrian cooks cabbage, the German has savoy cabbage on the table ... There is also a Babylonian confusion of language around beans: Bean pods, also known as Strankalan in southern Austria (Carinthia), appear in Germany as green beans, green beans or French beans. However, some Austrians simply understand beans as beans - and that can also be runner beans, which in Austria are called beetle beans ...

Now you could think that what is growing regionally has also gained a regional name - but that's not the case. After all, an Arancia grown in Italy is also called orange in Austria and orange in Germany. And the grapefruit is called grapefruit in Germany.
