φυσικος v φρεσκος

phrase builder 2 greek advanced page 82 translates fresh orange juice with φυσικος  but the following phrase practice quiz answers uses φρεσκο (masc accusative form ). referring to oxford greek-english dictionary the former seems more appropriate whereas the former has a subtle difference. would one use the former asking for fresh juice in greece?

  • Hello, 

    It is common to use φυσικός (=natural) when you ask for a fresh juice of any kind. 
    You can use φρέσκος but is no common...
    You can use φρέσκος when you refer to fresh food at the grocery store for instance.
    Hope it helps!
