When they start selling loads of dried fruit in every mall
The original is pl. masc., which would be 3rd pers. in non-pres. ind., which is also used for a generic ‘they’.
‘Fruit’ is singular and plural.
‘Commercial quantities’ is used in Hebrew slang for ‘in very large amounts’.
No, this is not an abbreviation. It's the numbering system that uses letters as numbers. ט"ו בשבט is the 15th of Shvat. Normally, we'd use a yud and a hey, meaning 10 and 5, but those two letters, when combined, are an abbreviation of G-d's name, so, instead, we use tet and vuv, meaning 9 and 6, to get 15.
