Verified Purchase(What is this?)
A sound analysis of the subject by a true expert, an Oxford botany professor who has researched widely on the origins of fruit. He is rightly cautious in his conclusions. For example on page 13 he states that the baskets similar in style to baskets shown in Spanish paintings of the period were "possibly brought back from an Iberian trip". London port books from the Elizabethan period show thousands of hand baskets being imported directly from Spain.
