Vegetables in Serbian vocabulary – fun facts
When you see the word “paradajz”, wouldn’t you think that it means paradise? But it’s actually tomato, not paradise! Many people’s favorite vegetable got its Serbian name from the Latin word paradisus, which means heaven or paradise.
No wonder, this delicious fruit was first called “rajska jabuka” (paradise apple), because raj is how we say paradise in Serbian. This is exactly why in formal Croatian the fruit is called rajčica.
