Apricots: as on earth, references exist of the fruit being sold in
marketplaces of the Tahari.
"I brushed away two sellers of apricots and spices."
Tribesmen of Gor pg.45
Blueberries: smuggled to Gor from Earth?very true.
Cherries: Grown in Tyros.
Dates: from Tor
" A veiled woman was hawking dates by the tefa."
Tribesmen of Gor pg.46
Ka-la-na: from the ka-la-na tree of the plains of ka-la-na. Used to make wine
and garnish drinks.
"Over there," I said, "are some Ka-la-na trees. Wait here and I'll gather some fruit."
Tarnsman of Gor pg.96
Larma: like an apple, singe seeded, firm with a hard shell, sweet juicy
fruit, sometimes called the pit fruit, because of the large single stone. The
offering of the larma fruit to a girls Master (imagined or real) is a silent
plea for slave rape.
" The larma is lucious. It has a rather hard shell but the shell is brittle and
easily broken. Within, the fleshy endocarp, the fruit, is delicious, and very
juicy. Sometimes, when a woman is referred to as a "larma," it is suggested that
her hard or frigid exterior conceals a rather different sort of interior, one
likely to be quite delicious. Once the shell has been broken through or removed,
irrevocably, there is, you see, exposed, soft, vulnerable, juicy and helpless,
the interior, in the fruit, the fleshy endocarp, in the woman, the slave."
Renigades of Gor pg.437
Melon: Yellow red striped spheres
"Buy melons!" called a fellow next to her, lifting one of the yellowish, red-striped spheres towards me.
Tribesmen of Gor pg.45
Merlot Grapes: Dark grapes that are used to make wine.
Olives, Torian: A type of olive mentioned but not otherwise described.
Possibly a black olive of some sort.
"The Tarn Keeper, who was called by those in the tavern Mip, bought the food,
bosk steak and yellow bread, peas and Torian olives, and two golden-brown,
starchy Suls, broken open and filled with melted bosk cheese."
Assassin of Gor pg.168
Pears Similar to an earth pear perhaps.
"In her hand there was a half of a yellow Gorean pear, the remains of a half
moon of verr cheese imbedded in it."
Explorers of Gor pg.62
Peaches. As an earths peach.
"Another device, common in Port Kar, is for the girl to kneel before the
master and put her head down and lift her arms, offering him fruit, usually a
larma, or a yellow Gorean peach, ripe and fresh."
Tribesmen of Gor pg.27
Pit Fruit Also known as the hard larma, this is a firm, single-
seeded, applelike fruit.
" I took a slice of hard larma from my tray. This is a firm, single-seeded,
applelike fruit. It is quite unlike the segmented, juicy larma. It is sometimes
called, and perhaps more aptly, the pit fruit, because of its large single stone."
Players of Gor pg.267
Plums: As Earth Plums
"I had nearly stepped into a basket of plums."
Tribesmen of Gor pg.45
Pomegranate: Hopefully similar to the earth fruit of the same name.
" Pomegranate orchards lie at the east of the oasis," I said."
Tribesmen of Gor pg.174
Raisins: For any who do not realise this, raisins are dried grapes. As the
grapes on Gor might not have the exact taste of Earth grapes, raisins might be
slightly different than what we're used to.
"In the cafes I had feasted well. I had had verr meat, cut in chunks and
threaded on a metal rod, with slices of peppers and larma, and roasted; vulo
stew with raisins, nuts, onions and honey; a kort with melted cheese and nutmeg;
hot Bazi tea, sugared, and, later, Turian wine."
Tribesmen of Gor pg.47
Ram Berries: Small red fruit native to Gor, it is used to make jams and pies
or just serve in bowls.
" A guard was with us, and we were charged with filling our leather buckets
with ram-berries, a small, reddish fruit with edible seeds, not unlike tiny
plums, save for the many small seeds."
Captive of Gor pg.305
Redfruit: Sweet and similar to the apple of Earth
Ta-grapes: From the Isle of Cos, like Earth grapes and used to make wine, but
may also be eaten.
"The grapes were purple and, I suppose, Ta grapes from the lower vineyards
of the terraced island of Cos some four hundred pasangs from Port Kar."
Priest Kings of Gor pg.45
Tospit: Small yellow peachy fruit bitter tasting and holds a large number of
seeds. Because of the bitter taste they are served candied or sliced dipped in honey.
"On the back of the kaiila, the black lance in hand, bending down in the
saddle, I raced past a wooden wand fixed in the earth, on the top of which was
placed a dried tospit, a small, wrinkled, yellowish-white peachlike fruit, about
the size of a plum, which grows on the tospit bush, patches of which are
indigenous to the drier valleys of the western Cartius. They are bitter but edible."
Nomads of Gor pg.59
