Plate 1055 from the John Reeves Collection of Botanical Drawings, held in the Botany Library at the Natural History Museum in London, presents a stunning arrangement of various edible fruits from China during the 19th century. This illustration showcases an exquisite selection of fruits, including the Mango (Mangifera indica), Lychee (Litchi chinensis), Peach (Prunus persica), Trapa (Trapa bicornis), Apricot (Prunus armeniaca), and Quince (Cydonia oblonga). The Mango, a member of the Sapotaceae family, is depicted with its luscious, golden-yellow skin encasing juicy, sweet flesh. The Lychee, belonging to the Sapindaceae family, is illustrated with its red, round exterior concealing a white, translucent aril and a single seed. The Peach, a Prunus species, is shown with its velvety, pink-red skin and succulent, juicy flesh. The Trapa, a unique aquatic fruit, is presented with its elongated, ribbed shape and floating on water. The Apricot, a member of the Rosaceae family, is illustrated with its small, round, orange-yellow fruit and velvety, golden-brown skin. Lastly, the Quince, a member of the Rosaceae family, is depicted with its golden-yellow, oblong fruit and rough, brown skin. This botanical illustration, created during the 19th century, provides a glimpse into the rich diversity of edible fruits from China. The fruits are depicted in great detail, highlighting their unique morphological features and showcasing their beauty. The illustration is part of the extensive John Reeves Collection, which documents the flora of China during the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The collection is an invaluable resource for botanical research and a testament to the artistic and scientific achievements of the time.
