Do you eat a lot of fruit and vegetables in you country?
Yes, we do. The most popular vegetables are potatoes, carrots, peas, and cauliflower. The most popular fruit are apples, bananas, pears, peaches, grapes, and oranges. Do you like vegetables?
I like them very much. We also eat a lot of vegetables in my country, but we eat different kinds.
Which kinds of vegetables do people in your country usually eat?
We eat sweet corns, broccoli and eggplant.
I love eggplant! Unfortunately, it’s quite expensive in my country, so I don’t eat it often.
Why is it relatively expensive?
Because we don’t grow it much in my country. We import a lot from other countries.
I see. We grow a lot of fruit and vegetables in my country. We export a lot of melons, grapes, oranges and lemon. In your country, do you eat corn on the cob? It’s very popular in my country.
We eat it in my country too, but I wouldn’t say it’s very popular. Most people buy frozen sweet corn from their local supermarket.
Do people usually buy frozen vegetables in your country? It’s very rare in mine.
A lot of younger people like to buy large packets of mixed frozen vegetables. Peas and sweet corn have been sold frozen in my country for many years. I prefer to buy fresh vegetables.
