Native plants and heirloom fruits are popular painting subjects nowadays, witness the on-going Tradescant Exhibition in London that features a variety of fruits including apples, pears, peaches, grapes.

Also, the Royal Horticultural Society is holding an exhibition celebrating “our rich apple heritage” at the RHS Lindley Library in London from September 7 through November 10. For more details see http://www.rhs.org.uk/shows-events/viewevent?EFID=517&ESRC=CMS.
