English term or phrase: fruit bowl
Dear Sir,
I was wondering how you would say "fruit bowl" in Chinese?In a language like Italian this would be expressed FLEXIONALLY as "fruttiera" but I suspect that Chinese says it in an ANALYTICAL way much like English.

Any help is greatly appreciated.

Please send the reply in Roman letters.

Thank you very much,
