Example sentences using "Fruit"

Q: Please show me example sentences with "fruit" - countable or uncountable??.
A: It depends on the sentence and even then you can sometimes use it as either. Fruit is generally uncountable when talking about one type (sometimes two) and so you'd say "I ate some fruit, I had apples and banana." When used like this, we often say "piece(s) of fruit", as in "You should eat at least five pieces of fruit a day."

If you're talking about multiple different types, then you usually use it as a countable noun, so you'd say "I have four different fruits here: apples, oranges, grapes and pears."

Synonyms of "Fruit" and their differences

Q: What is the difference between a fruit was bad. and the fruit was bad. ?
A: 'a fruit' is general, it refers to any fruit.
'the fruit' means you're talking about a specific fruit.
Q: What is the difference between dry fruits and dried fruit ?
A: 'Dried fruits', 'dry fruits', 'dried fruit' and 'dry fruit' are all acceptable. 'Dried' means they have been dried, 'dry' means they are dry, but in this example there is no difference in meaning. I would say you could find any variation on a pack of dried fruit in the supermarket, but 'dried fruit' is the most natural-sounding in speech.
Q: What is the difference between fruit and fruits and My friend will be held an exhibition of various kind of fruits made of glass. She wants name the exhibition "fruits". Which one is correct to use of fruit plural or singular form? ?
A: @sachichiyan: 'fruit' is a mass noun, which means that you cannot say 'one fruit' or 'two fruits' or 'a few fruits', except when you are talking about different KINDS of fruit. for example, let's take another mass noun, 'rice':

pretend your friend has cooked two kinds of rice: white rice and brown rice. he asks you, 'I've got two rices. which do you want?' (this means, 'which kind of rice do you want?')

it's not a common usage, but in certain contexts when you are specifically referring to KINDS of things, it is a reasonable thing to say.

so your friend is right in this case, because her exhibition is about various kinds of fruits, so 'fruits' is the right plural here, but not in many other situations.

hope that helped!
