Fruits Name in Punjabi for English Readers

I live in India, and I speak Hindi, Punjabi and English very well. I have also been learning some more languages.

Punjabi is the most prominent language in the Punjab province of India. Today, the people of Punjab have made their home in almost every country in the world. Their vesture has changed with migration, but the love for their mother language, Punjabi, won't leave their hearts. They took Punjabi wherever they went, which is why you can find traces of the Punjabi language anywhere in the world.

We will discuss here the names of the various 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.
