Ingredients: fruits

Quote:We know that the Romans had grapes and we know that they had apples. Did they have both green and purple grapes? Did they have both red and green apples.

On the first count, definitely yes. Pictorial sources are very clear. On the second one, I can prove red (from frescoes in Pompeii), and since green is the normal colour, I would assume both existed. I have one picture of green fruit here, but these could equally well be apple quinces.
