Yes it is puttygal. The official spelling might be different but it is pronounced Puttie -Gal.

Try searching Portugal without specifying fruit and see what you get, found exactly what I was looking for with our spelling and pronunciation.(well done Kerwyn, and Joseph).

I’m Canadian. I had to ask my Trini mother in law if that’s what she trained her parrot to say to her. “Pretty-gyal, pretty-gyal”
