What’s the rule for writing in hiragana or katakana?
The standard rule is to write native Japanese words in hiragana and 外来語 (gairaigo), foreign borrowed words, in katakana. However, in biological contexts, fruits, vegetables, plants, and animals are written in katakana. You will often see Japanese fruit and vegetable names written in katakana in supermarkets and farmer’s markets.
