Many a time, I’ve paid tribute to the inherent creativity and ingenuity of Nigerians.
Nigerians are so creative that rather than find out the English names of certain fruits, they have either stuck with the traditional name or invented a new name for said fruit. Here are common examples:
1. Tropical Almonds
The tropical almond can be found in many parts of Southern Nigeria. But Nigerians definitely don’t bother calling it tropical almond. This delicious fruit is referred to as “fruit”.
PS: I never said the Nigerian ingenuity was that great.
