Is there any distinction between growing produce and raising animals? In english it would sound off if you said, "im growing a cow". It sort of implies you're growing it in a lab or something.
mm.. only when it comes to writing with ניקוד. normally you would spell fruit פירות, which would help you know that it's a fruit salad you're ordering and not a cow salad ;)
Actually parot is cows and perot means fruit(s) That's why I always spell perot with the vowel letter yod i.e. פירות but I don't know if absolutely everybody necessarily does as I fear I'm not a sabra.
