One and Many

Lo, an apple tree. And lo, again--a different tree, this one a pear tree. The former produces apples, while the latter, in keeping with its nature, produces pears. Now, along comes a modern academic; listen, what sayeth he?
Ah, but both trees produce fruit, do they not? Let us therefore refer to both trees by the appellation, "fruit trees."
Well done, sir! Now neither tree can possibly feel slighted.
