I want to know the correct use of comma in below sentence...

What I want to say: Two apples>> I do not want to specify where I got from Two pears>> they were picked from my garden

Sentence1: "I will give you two apples and two pears, which were picked from my garden, this afternoon when I meet you."

Sentence2: "I will give you two apples and two pears which were picked from my garden this afternoon when I meet you."

  • "This afternoon, when I meet you, I'll give you two apples and also two pears from my pear tree." – ab2 ReinstateMonicaNow Apr 18 '16 at 22:31

Sentence 1: "I will give you two apples and two pears, which were picked from my garden, this afternoon when I meet you."

Is preferable, as there's no confusion about when the picking or the meeting happens. Even so, the time line is bumpy: 'I will give' (future), 'were picked' (past), 'when I meet' (future).

Suggested revision:

"This afternoon when I meet you, I will give you two apples and two pears which were picked from my garden."
