Esperanto[edit]

Etymology[edit]

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

Noun[edit]

pomujo ‎(accusative singular pomujon, plural pomujoj, 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".
