Scroll through this selection of about 500 Australian rainforest fruits and their species descriptions if you are interested. They are arranged according to colors. There are 2 other volumes in this series.

looks pretty interesting, Mike.  It always annoys me when books don't at least mention if the plants bear edible fruit (better yet, if they commented on palatability and amount of flesh present).

ya, some books are bad.  one local fruit book here has numerous toxic species, even castor bean without so much as a mention of its danger.

I like the books drawings.
