    i want telugu name of peaches,pulses (soya and lentils)

  11. Vivek Kumar says:

    Peach is called దొండపండు. For pulses, I guess I would be providing a separate page.

    1. sam says:

      “Dondapandu” is not “Peach”. I do not think there is a telugu equivalent of the word ‘peach’. It is a non native fruit of India. so, it is called ‘peach’ only. However, ‘Dondapandu’ is completely wrong. Please do not give false information without doing research. I appreciate if you can provide authentic reference if peach is really called ‘Dondapandu’ in telugu.

  36. Arvind says:

    Hi peaches ni Telugu lo emantaru ?

  37. Arvind says:

    Apple ni seema regi pandu antaru

  38. Arvind says:

    Tomato ni telugulo emantaro cheppagalara?

  39. Harshavardhan Karakampalle says:

    First of all, many of the fruits are non-native and hence are imported from other countries along with native and locally given non-native names. These vary from place to place e.g., Potato- Bangaladumpa, Urlagadda, Aloogadda, etc.

    Similarly, many of the fruits are locally termed in Telugu by referring them as fruits of/from cities (seemalo pande phalamulu).

    Also to note, many non-native fruits do not have local names. They just referred as variants of the existing ones. Eg. Berries. (Berry- kaya or pandu referred to smaller sizes, usually prefixed by their colours- blue, black, rose, etc.)

    A few of them for your reference:

    Tomato or Love-Apple: takkali pandu or karpurapu vankaya or seema
    budda boosara kaya, mulakkaya.
    Brinjal (product of Egg-plant): vanga chettu kaya kabatti vankaya
    Orange: Narinja, Kamala pandu
    Lime (Derived from this):
    Lime: Nimma pandu
    Great-Lime: Gaja nimma pandu
    Sweet-Lime: Baththayi pandu or Cheeni pandu
    Papaya: boppayi pandu or parindi pandu
    Apple: Seema Regu Pandu (A kind of locally grown regu pandu)
    Custard-Apple: Seetha Phalamu
    Bullock’s heart Apple/ Red Custard Apple: Raama Seetha Phalam
    Rose-Apple: Allo Neredu pandu
    Pine-Apple: Anasa pandu
    Wood-Apple or Elephant-Apple: Velaga pandu
    Gourd (Derived from this):
    Snake-gourd: Potla kaya
    Bitter-gourd: kakara kaya
    Bottle-gourd: sora kaya
    Pumpkin: gummadi kaya
    Melon (Derived from this): kharbuja pandu leda puchcha kaya
    Water-Melon: often referred as tharbuja pandu or molaam pandu
    Bitter-Melon: Verri puchcha kaya
    Peach: Sapthala pandu (Its similar to Donda pandu NOT donda pandu)

    At the end, I would like to mention, I was very much apprehensive and really shocked to see many vague and wrong answers in this page. Instead, one could have referred available materials or consulted teachers to know the correct answers. I feel, gradually the patronage for Telugu is being lost owing to two main reasons: a) dramatic cultural westernization and b)stronger effects of artificial, slang and filmy language adopted heavily by most of the youth today.

    Language knows no boundaries. Language should not get limited only to certain classes of people. I urge and earnestly request each and everyone (including me with everyone), to uphold the practice of learning mother tongue language even after one’s High-School Education, as one’s contribution to preserve the age-old linguistic culture and traditions of highly civilized India. Allow future generations to feel the proud heritage of our mother India.

  58. Vinay says:

    Hi! How many of you read “Kanyasulkam” by “Gurizada Apparao”?

    It makes an excellent reading. Any way, for the benefit of those who have not read the book : Mr Gireesam is the hero and Venkatesam his student. Gireesam accompanies his student to his home in the village.Girisam is supposed to be teaching English to his ardent disciple. Venkatesm’s mother (an orthodox brahmin lady) while serving food asks her son “what do they call MINUMULU in English”. He has a real problem. He thinks a bit and answers “IS”.Then,his mother asks “fine, what then are PESALU called?”.This time Venkatesam has no problem. He answers with out any hesitation “WAS”.Well, the poor lady is highly impressed with the scholarship of her son and highly appreciative of his teacher.

    Well, I am equally impressed with your scholarship of “Telugu Language”.
