What's wrong with inoltre le mele?

Yes, I would like to know, too. I put this and it took away my last heart. :(

And I lost a heart because I put "Oltre a mele,..." ,which I selected because 1) Google Translate gave that answer 2) "oltre a" was one of the hints in the dropdown helper menu. :-(♡

I'm not sure we can use "inoltre" here. In this case "besides" means "apart from, other than," which could be also "all'infuori di" or "tranne" but not "inoltre".

I hope somebody will provide a better explanations, in the meantime here are some links regarding oltre and inoltre.

oltre le mele… e oltre gli orizzonti infiniti di questa erratissima traduzione.

BEYOND = OLTRE -- BESIDES = A PARTE !!

"A parte le mele, io non mangio frutta"

E che caspio!
