1. Lat. racēmus m. 'bunch, cluster (of grapes or other fruit)' (MDV) 2. Gr. ῥᾱ́ξ, ῥᾱγός 'grape' (RB). Etym. dub.: "probably a loanword from a Mediterranean language" (MDV).
Michiel de Vaan. "racēmus" in: Etymological Dictionary of Latin and the other Italic Languages. Indo-European Etymological Dictionaries Online. Edited by Alexander Lubotsky. Brill, 2014. Brill Online. August 11, 2014. < http://iedo.brillonline.nl.ludwig.lub.lu.se/dictionaries/lemma.html?id=14008 >, 1. Lat. frāga-ōrum n. & pl. ‘strawberry’ < PItal. *frāgo- (MDV). 2. Gr. ῥᾱ́ξ, ῥᾱγός 'grape' (RB) 3. Alb. (Eastern Geg) drathe, (Tosk) dredhë 'strawberry'. "The meaning of frāga closely matches that of Alb. dredhë, and the two may reflect *dhrHǵ-o-. It seems unlikely that the word indicated 'strawberry' in PIE, however, and it may well be a loanword. An alternative connection of frāga with Gr. ῥαξ, ῥαγός 'grape', ρώξ 'grape' is possible if one starts from *srāg-; both the phonological form and the diverging meanings 'strawberry' and 'grape' would then point to a third (non-IE?) language from which the word was borrowed" (MDV).
