Hay demasiada fruta en la nevera .

Hay demasiada fruta en la nevera .

ıs that wrong sentence? why don't we say 'hay demasiadas frutas en la nevera'.?

because fruit is countable.ı think we should use 'many ' for countable and in spanish many is damasiada.

Hola Sanem

we generally use "fruta" in singular if we are referring to it in a general way (this way we see it as uncountable): demasiada fruta

If we used it in plural, "frutas", we'd probably say "hay demasiadas piezas de fruta en la nevera" demasiadas frutas sounds a bit odd in Spanish.
