Following the resounding success of Flora, Scriptum Editions now brings you Fruit, another amazing collection of exquisite images from the Royal Horticultural Society's superb archive. Never before published in a single volume these unique pictures, complemented by comprehensive text, trace the staggeringly complex evolution of many varieties of fruit, from their wild origins in Central Asia and China, through the history of their cultivation and their place in popular culture to the cherished place that they now hold in today's domestic gardens. From the plum to the passionfruit and the strawberry to the lime, the history and evolution of fruit is a labyrinth. Whether it be pears or pineapples, Fruit is full of surprises.
