Pomes. You know, fruits like apples, pears, medlars:
and quinces. Basically, a pome is any fruit that has juicy flesh and a core in the middle where you find the seeds - though when I say juicy, I don't necessarily mean edible by humans: the fruits of cotoneasters and whitebeam, for instance, are pomes, but tend not to feature in recipe books.
Still, pomaceous...it makes an apple sound all the juicier, doesn't it.

Spot the Frippet: pomaceous. This word comes from Old French from the Latin pomum, apple.
