The descriptive adjective

Bonjour,

Was wondering about the word frais since it means fresh. I thought that fresh fruit would be similar to saying l'enfant est frais. Or would I be wrong in my following examples. 

Le fruit est frais

The fruit is fresh

L'enfant est frais


Can I also say

Le frais Enfant

The fresh kid


Thanks

Nicole

Hi Nicole, 

You wouldn't use 'frais' to describe a person, it is normally used for beverages, food, places, or the weather.

Here is an interesting page of the use of the adjective frais/fraîche :

Bonne Continuation!
