Plurals

Not sure if I'm missing something here - am I right in thinking the only way to tell if you're dealing with a plural object is if there's an adjective involved? 

e.g. Bíi yod le yuth wa = I eat the fruit or fruits
but Bíi yod le woliyen woyuth wa = I eat the green fruit.  cf. Bíi yod le mewoliyen woyuth wa - I eat the green fruits.

Is this right?  It seems odd to have no plural noun form (though I know of other languages where that's the case), but more odd to have the plural indicated at some times and not others.  Or is there some other way of marking it that I haven't got to in the lessons yet...?
