Translation:The vegetables come from different regions.
One of the given accepted English translations was "The vegetables...". Can "das Gemüse kommt..." really be translated as plural in English? I suspect not (should be "Die Gemüse sind..."), but given that English has weird stuff going on with the word "fruit" I thought I'd ask prior to reporting it.
Correct, which is why it was ambiguous how Duo wanted this translated- I was marked wrong for "Vegetables come from different regions." It seems unclear, to me, that the German implies "these vegetables here" (in counter-distinction to vegetables in general) by using the definite article.
Here's a study comparing and contrasting determiner marking in English vs. German. Lots of similarities, but more differences than generally acknowledged. https://portal.ikw.uni-osnabrueck.de/~cl/download/BSc_Pollex2008.pdf
