    I knew the names of all these vegetables. But I want to confirm one thing. Is aubergine(s) the other name of brinjal @Lynne
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 8,808 mod
    The only time we say Brinjal, is when we are talking Indian cuisine.

    @Lynne what if a pepper is green? Is it a capsicum?
  • MonikMonik Posts: 952 ✭✭✭✭
    @meu I think pepper and capsicum are the same even if is a green pepper :)
  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 8,808 mod
    @Meu - If someone says "Capiscum" to me, my response is "Bless you". :wink:

    31:06. Teacher beaten here. And you guys?
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 29,866 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    Artichoke is a new word for me.
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 29,866 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @meu Capsicum's expression :)

  • LynneLynne Your Teacher HomePosts: 8,808 mod
    They are all capiscums, but we don't call them that.

    We have red peppers, green pepper, yellow peppers ...

    Capiscum - Any of various tropical American pepper plants of the genus Capsicum, especially any of the numerous cultivated forms of the species C. annuum and C. frutescens.
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 29,866 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @Lynne on lighter side, I think pepper is much smarter than capsicums in size and taste. :)
  • chyijungchyijung Posts: 1,882 ✭✭✭✭
    Do you call chilli as pepper too? I saw some chilli products in supermarket labelled as pepper sauces. For me, they are different things. Red, Green and yellow peppers usually don't cause hot taste in your palate, chillis do.
  • chyijungchyijung Posts: 1,882 ✭✭✭✭
    I just finished with the time 18.08
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 29,866 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    I think Chilli has more pungent taste as compared to other peppers and mostly used in Asian cuisine, right @Lynne
  • exmemberexmember Posts: 2,332 ✭✭✭✭✭
    But I like to call it capsicum @Lynne
    You spoiled my schema :(
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 29,866 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @meu your schema is already spoiled that it doesn't accept new things. :p
  • exmemberexmember Posts: 2,332 ✭✭✭✭✭
    18:09 @Lynne
  • exmemberexmember Posts: 2,332 ✭✭✭✭✭
    @bubbli this is what a schema is. :p
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 29,866 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @meu :) but you can break one schema by developing another. :P
  • exmemberexmember Posts: 2,332 ✭✭✭✭✭
    I want to keep my capsicum schema rather than developing pepper schema.
    Is it so much I am asking?
    :(
  • chyijungchyijung Posts: 1,882 ✭✭✭✭
    My best record 36.08 !

    like it more. @Lynne please continue this challenge game. I have remembered all of them though I usually mix up lettuce, cabbage, and broccoli.
  • chyijungchyijung Posts: 1,882 ✭✭✭✭
    The timer run from 60.00 to 00.00, therefore the more number you get the better the result is.

    @bubbli can you correct my sentence? It just sounds not correct. I am trying to organize my sentence in different way.
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 29,866 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @chyijung which sentence?
  • chyijungchyijung Posts: 1,882 ✭✭✭✭

    @chyijung I think so. But why your focus is on timings.
  • chyijungchyijung Posts: 1,882 ✭✭✭✭
    Hurray!
  • BubblyBubbly Nightingale Posts: 29,866 ✭✭✭✭✭✭
    @chyijung What?
