⚠️ᴱQ. marin, n. “(ripe) fruit (of apple type)” (Category: Fruit)

A word for a “(ripe) fruit” in the Qenya Lexicon of the 1910s under the early root ᴱ√MARA¹ having to do with ripeness (QL/59). Tolkien clarified that it was used for fruits “esp. [from] trees of the apple type” (QL/59) and “with pulp firm [and] seeds like apple” (QL/61). In the contemporaneous Poetic and Mythological Words of Eldarissa the word was simply glossed “fruit” (PME/59).
