Sharing enum type across multiple schemas

Just started learning GraphQL and I would like to share an enum that I exported in a express apollo server.


export enum fruitsEnum{

Import the enum


import { fruitsEnum } from "./src/shared/fruitsEnum.ts"

export const typeDef = `
    type Fruit{
        id: ID
        fruitName: fruitsEnum

    type Query{

I tried doing this but I am getting Error: Unknown type fruitsEnum . The reason that I put the enum in a separate location is because the same enum might be used at other schema. My goal is to have a shareable enum type but what went wrong here? It seems like the schema doesn’t accept variable that is being imported.
