Who buys a single strawberry to split with at least one other person?

In Portuguese we usually say that in singular (meaning plural)....strange, I know....

Paul, does this apply only to strawberries?


https://www.duolingo.com/profile/Paulenrique

No. Normally for fruits

So can I say, "Vou comprar luva." Muito obrigado

Ok. If you referred to grapes (uvas), you can say "vou comprar uva" or "vou comprar uvas". If you referred to gloves (luvas), you can say "vou comprar luva", "vou comprar luvas", "vou comprar uma luva", "vou comprar um par de luvas" ;)
