Agathe, my wife, likes fruits. It might be because one of her ancestors, Charles Baltet, created in the XIXth century many varieties of pears and apples, including the Pear of Dr Jules Guyot, better known as the Poire Guyot, and the apples Cramoisie de Croncels and Virginie Baltet. He is also the author of the ‘Grafting and budding’ book.
My wife buys all kind of fruits on the market. She came back a couple days ago with a beautiful quince. She also likes to leave fruits on a table until they change color and decay. I took the ones I found at home today to take a picture.
