Can "flotte" be translated as "nice" here?

I think that would make more sense – never heard of a "handsome" apple here, but I guess they are going for a direct translation

I wrote beautiful instead of pretty and it was wrong ...

When I lived in Denmark, pindsvin meant porcupine.

My Danish girlfriend tells me that pindsvin is a hedgehog and a porcupine is a 'cave hedgehog'- hulepindsvin.

Thanks! I thought of "porcupine" first.

Porcupine is the same as hedgehog, no?

No, it is a different animal. See for example Wikipedia.
