    These are really great. I love the idea of looking up unusual fruit to draw, too.


  2. Agree about the physalis – yuck. My dad grew some in an old green house years ago – they loved it, ran riot and had loads of fruit. My mum hates to waste anything, so we had to eat them!!

  3. I grew up in a tropical country so I recognize some of these fruits. Brings back memories.Lovely drawings!

    That’s a new one to me!

  5. Suddenly I’m feeling so uncultured! I’ve never even heard of some of these (most, actually!) Wonderful drawings by everyone!
