You anglosaxon lot are aware that apples don't grow on pines right?
Most of the rest of us call them things ananas (42 languages); and yes, bananas without the b seems just as absurd, I know, however........
Nah, not bananas without a b, apparently ananas is a word from the Tupi language (an indian tribe in the south america's)
Come to think of it, it may well be the fault of the Dutch that you call them pineapples, since the Dutch call pine cones ...........
drumroll............. dennenappels (pineapples) . Anyway, at least we get it right that them things grow on trees.
But no, the plot gets more complicated, it seems we need to blame the Spaniards for the pine in "pineapple", since they had the nerve to call an ananas piña, (after the cono de piña). So we blame Columbus for the pine, the Dutch for the apple, and yes, the Canadians for the hawaiian pizza, agreed.
Wait, not so fast. I learned long ago that the French word for “potato” is “la pomme de terre” or “apple of the ground”.
France, being a large country with a high credibility in matters of fine cuisine solidifies the concept that it is “ok” to refer to the earth as being a source of apples.
Further consultation from our infallible source, Wiktionary, indicates the potato in rare English is referred to as “earthapple”, in German “erdapfel”, your Dutch “aardappel” (please correct me if I am wrong ) and Icelandic “jaroepli” with a squiggle over the “o” that I cannot duplicate with my current font selection, all of which means that the “apple” indeed may equally be referred to as a plant growing in the ground as a fruit on a tree.

That Black House? You did that?
Must try it. Sugar first or last Mr Chef?
And we Brits for everything else.
Well, obviously since English, Dutch, Frisian, Low Saxon (plattdeutsch) and German (hochdeutsch) all stem from the same germanic language family, there's no surprise that there are a lot of things those languages have in common. It's not a coincidence that "anglo-saxon" refers to two germanic tribes that decided to move to Albion and pushed the original Celtic britons to the far ends of the island.
Don't, just don't (and just in case you're gahi’g ulo : don't complain that you didn't get warned )
