English term or phrase:nut-size fruit
I need to find the English technical term that refers to a newly developed fruit (in my case apples), still the size of a nut. I proposed fruitlet, but client said "it is a different thing"
Explanation: ...as opposed to "mature fruit". Assuming you're talking about regular-sized fruit in the early stages of development I'd be tempted to stick with something fairly self-explanatory. I'm not sure whether this is a technical term but there are some good-looking refs out there for it. Or how about "the developing fruit"?
