With you there CharlieBear.
The problem goes right through the whole of the fruit species.
I try to identify apple varieties that are brought in by the public at West Dean College near here and with the thousands of varieties around it can be a challenge on some occasions.
My dread is that they come back the following year and I give them a different answer!!
Must say though with apples John Bultitude's book on core section views is invaluable when doubt creeps in.
Like you though....I find the challenge is great.
