Notes
Aardappel click to hear ('potato') can have either an -S or an -EN plural; the -EN plural is a little old-fashioned:
aardappels click to hear - aardappelen click to hear
Interestingly, Dutch bloem click to hear ('white flour') also means 'flower.'
The singular ui click to hear ('onion') sounds (to Dutch ears) like it's ending in W; but that W-sound is dropped in the plural uien click to hear
Sinaasappel click to hear ('orange') probably originated as 'China-apple.'
The general word for 'mushrooms' is paddestoelen click to hear ('toad-chairs') - champignons click to hear (said as a French word) is just the white button variety.
An old-fashioned word for 'mushrooms' is zwammen click to hear - singular: (de) zwam click to hear 2
'Pineapple' is ananas click to hear in Dutch; there is an old-fashioned word pijnappel click to hear for 'pinecone,' but the common word is denneappel click to hear 2. A related (and also old-fashioned) word is pijnappelklier click to hear 2 ('pineal gland.' )
Limoenen click to hear was an old-fashioned Dutch word for 'lemons' (now: citroenen click to hear ) that was revived by a famous 70s commercial for 'Fa' soap; nowadays it's sometimes used for 'limes.'
