Fruits Name in Punjabi for English Readers

I live in India, and I speak Hindi, Punjabi and English very well. I like to learn other languages too.

Punjabi is the most prominent language in the Punjab province of India. Today, the people of Punjab have settled in almost all countries around the globe. Their vesture has changed with migration, but the love for their mother language, Punjabi, won't leave their hearts. They have brought Punjabi wherever they have gone; that's why traces of the Punjabi language can be found anywhere in the world.

Here we will discuss the names of different fruits in the Punjabi language. The Punjabi names for the fruits have been provided in the Roman script for the ease of understanding of English readers.
