Caption: Quince (Cydonia oblonga), historical artwork. The label (bottom) gives the French name for this fruit, 'coignassier', so-called because the unpleasant odour of the fruit led to it being planted in a remote corner (coin) of the orchard or garden. Shown here are the flowers (centre), the developing fruit and leaves (top) and the ripe fruit (lower right). The quince at lower left has been halved to reveal the seeds, two of which are at lower centre. Artwork from a book published in 1768.
