Autumn in British English or fall in American English is the season where days are starting to get shorter and temperatures cooler. It is also the time of the year where we like to spend a little more time indoors and can cook all these delicious autumn veggies.
If you are learning French, take this opportunity to learn names of autumn vegetables in French. Learn them together with the article so you you can remember which is feminine and which is masculine:
|pumpkin||le potiron, la citrouille|
|marrow (Brit.), squash (Am.)||la courge|
|red hubbard squash, red kuri squash||le potimarron|
|flageolets, dwarf kidney beans||les flageolets (m.)|
|lentils||les lentilles (f.)|
|split peas||les pois cassés|
|beetroot (Brit.) or beet (Am.)||la betterave|
|spinach||les épinards (m.)|
Some vegetables are always used in the plural form in French, for example “les épinards”. In that case, you will see (f.) for feminine nouns and (m.) for masculine nouns.
There you are! You can now go to French shops or markets and buy your favourite autumn vegetables in French. Congratulations! 🙂
