Fruit: An illustrated History by Peter Blackburn Maze

Book Review :
A glossy coffee table book about what else :) fruits with average text but beautiful pictures...

Fun facts from this book:

  • Todays Citrus fruits probably arose from about a dozen wild species that originated in the region encompassing South East Asia and India.
  • The scientific names of the pineapple - Ananas comosus and the Chickoo - Manilkara Sapote are surprisingly enough prevelant as common names in India. Pineapple and Chickoo are called Ananas and Sapota respectively in Gujarati.
