gli agrumi

Today’s Parola del Giorno is the noun gli agrumi, which means citrus fruits. Un agrume refers to either one citrus fruit or a citrus fruit tree. We discuss the grammar of fruit trees in our short language guide “Ripassiamo,” volume 2 of our Piccole Guide series.

A Natale è comune che si mangino gli agrumi dopo un grande cenone. Secondo me aiutano a digerire il cibo consumato. Mi piace mangiare un paio di mandarini con due o tre biscotti o un po’ di limoncello dopo cena!

At Christmas it is common to eat citrus fruits after a large dinner. In my opinion, they help digest the food that we’ve eaten. I like to eat a couple of mandarins with two or three cookies or a bit of limoncello after dinner!
