Esperanto[edit]

Etymology[edit]

pomo (an apple) +‎ -ujo (container for)

Noun[edit]

pomujo (plural pomujoj, accusative singular pomujon, accusative plural pomujojn)

  1. a container for collecting apples, like a barrel or basket
  2. Obsolete form of pomarbo (apple tree).

Usage notes[edit]

The archaic usage of the infix -uj- (container for) to make words for fruit trees comes from the Fundamento de Esperanto, but this was soon supplanted by making compounds with arbo (tree). Only early Esperanto materials use pomujo for "apple tree".
