Orange versus Apfelsine



Die Apfelsine or der Orange. 

Which one is more commonly used or is it regional. Am intrigued, have come across Die Apfelsine in books, but not in Rocket German as yet. 

Thanks and a happy New Year to all with lots of language learning for all




Hallo Sebongela,


Happy New Year to you, too! Originally, Apfelsine was more common in the northern regions of Germany and Orange was more common in the South; however, this seems to have been changing a bit in recent years and Orange is often what you hear the most these days no matter where you are in the country.
