Duolingo Italian: Food 1.2

15 Jan

Food 2 is simply some more common foods and learning what the word for food is (cibo). For some reason some obviously phallic foods are denoted as feminine.

Food

Banana: Banana, simply enough (but oddly feminine)

Carota: Carrot (srtangely feminine as well)

Caramella: Candy/lolly (feminine, but at least this makes sense)

Frutta: fruit (feminine)

Fagiolo: bean (masculine, I suppose it depends on how long the bean is).

Cibo: food (masculine)

Crockery

Piatto: plate (singular masculine)
