Galore in English language means 'in abundance'.

2. Examples are galore

Topic: S plural
Posted: Sunday, June 2, 2019 12:56:37 PM
The plural of fruit is, of course, fruits - IF you are talking about a collection of more than one KIND of fruit (for instance, apples, oranges and pears).

However, if you are talking about a large number of all the same sort of fruit (a pile of apples) then one of the apples is a fruit, and all of the apples together are also ‘fruit’.

‘Fruit’ is - or sometime is - a collective noun.
