postheadericon Cantonese Names of Fruits

Sometimes, we use some different names for fruits in Cantonese.

e.g. Mandarin: 葡萄 Cantonese: (葡)提子 The Cantonese do use 葡萄 in written Cantonese or use it in 葡萄酒 ( wine made of grapes, not the one made of rice.)

Mandarin — Cantonese

猕猴桃奇異果 kiwi fruits
樱桃車厘子cherry

Others are the same in both Mandarin and Cantonese:
