Yakthung Paan Hu Asi (Learn Limbu Language) – Fruits and Vegetables

There are a lot of fruits and vegetables we find here in Nepal. Some of them are of local origin. Many of them are brought from different continents and hence their name remains the same (of their origin). But sometime they get localized names. So, we commonly use the names of their origin. Here, I have tried to find the names of fruits and vegetables we commonly use.
