Frucht ist ein botanischer Begriff. Obst eher ein kulinarischer. Früchte ist der Plural im Nominativ, Akkusativ und Genitiv. Obst ist eher ein kulinarischer Begriff. Im Duden gibt es drei verschiedene Bedeutungen für das Wort "Frucht". Ich zitiere nur die erste Bedeutung, da sie zu Ihrer Frage passt: aus dem Fruchtknoten entstehender Teil der ...

It is surprisingly simple: Traube Botanically this is a type of plant with many, many members. Ironically, it doesn't include Weintrauben. This only concerns biologists. The other people use it as if it meant the fruit of "Weinrebe", the English grape. This word also describes anything clustered like grapes. Weinrebe is the genus vitis, i.e. the plant ...

Da Chicorée ein französisches Wort ist, kann natürlich Unsicherheit in Bezug auf das Geschlecht eintreten. Im westlichen Regionen wie dem Saarland, wo man enge Berührung mit Französisch hat , wird man wissen, dass das französische Wort feminin ist und wohl "die" sagen. Andere Regionen lassen sich wohl von "der Salat, der Lauch etc " beeinflussen. Im ...

To answer your question: As a native German speaker I only heard "der Chicorée". I've never heard a plural form of Chicorée. Wiktionary also says, there is no plural form. There are some German words, which have different genders based on the local dialect, like das/die Mofa, der/das Prospekt, die/der Butter, der/das Teller, das/der Gummi etc. (The first ...

I know Pomelo as a way larger fruit that you can pull to pieces. It's very sweet and usually comes from China or Vietnam when it's sold in stores. It has only recently shown up in supermarkets. We call it Pomelo in German, and I don't think many people know it, though it seems to get more common, as supermarket discounter chains like ALDI and LIDL usually ...

In addition to Barths answer it should be noted that neither are all Früchte Obst, nor is every Obst a Frucht. For example: Strawberries are considered Obst, while they are not a Frucht in the biological sense. Ananas is considered Obst, but is not a Frucht, but a Fruchtverband. On the other hand, peppers (Paprika) and tomatoes are Früchte but are not ...

Obst and Frucht/Früchte are the same thing in the supermarket. Obst has no plural, which makes it easier to use, it also has no second meaning, so I would stick to that for the time being. Obststand = Früchtestand (fruit stand) Obst essen = Früchte essen Obstkuchen = Früchtekuchen (selten) Obstfliege = Fruchtfliege Obstsalat = Fruchtsalat ... Obstwasser ...

Short answer: you refer to Obst as a culinary / cooking / baking / preparing-food term (fruit substance), whereas Frucht is a biological / botanical word (for example a tree consists of the stem, leaves, fruits...). Long answer: It is not very easy to make a 100% clear difference between them. If you say: Ich esse gerne Obst. and Ich esse gerne ...

It depends whether you are asking as a biologist, or as a normal person. Technical terminology The Pampelmuse (C. Maxima) is the fruit by crossing of which oranges (C.sinensis), grapefruit (C paradisi) and pomelo were made. Biologists don't confuse them. But the pomelo is, biologically speaking, just a variety, so the biologist will call it a "Pampelmuse ...

Well, I can tell you in Austria (and in the south of Germany – especially Bavaria) we don't use the word Pampelmuse neither for pomelo nor grapefruit. It is more used in the north of Germany. In a supermarket they are easily referred as grapefruit or pomelo. But anyway, a pomelo is not so common in every supermarket.

I recommend you actually read the Wikipedia pages that you cite. On the page for Tafeltrauben it clearly says that these are for eating, not for wine making. So Tafeltraube is a special kind of Weintraube. Wikipedia also explains that these are usually larger, have no or few seeds, and a soft skin. AFAIK they also have more sugar and less acidity, which is ...

Radieschen are garten-rettich, garden rashishes, or in English, common radishes (Raphanus sativus), tart little red-skinned white spheres. Sometimes, it is called the German radish. Rettiche is a broad category of plants, Brassicaceae, that includes common radishes (even the large daikon or "Oriental radish" cultivar), rape-seed, cabbage, and turnips.

This answer refers to everyday usage of the words, not necessary the biologically correct definition: To me as a native German speaker from South-Western Germany, Rettich and Radieschen are two entirely different things (and I am not sure I ever thought the two could be biologically related until this question just mentioned them together and thus hinted at ...
