I would have thought it should read. We ate your apples,otherwise we would be. Eating your apples

I think "We are eating your apples" would be accepted. I have found both the simple present and the present progressive in English are usually both marked correct as translations of the Romanian present.

I do wish Duolingo would use the present progressive more in its examples, though, as it would often be the preferred form in English.

glaudys and rockyroo21 -This is all as opposed to "the present emphatic", which uses the "to do" form. E.g., "We do eat your apples." Let us "do" see if it is accepted. . . .

If we regularly eat apples from your tree then "We eat your apples" is the correct form.
