I brushed away two sellers of apricots and spices. Tribesmen of Gor, page 45


Crushed fruit, usually, chokecherries, is then added to the meat. Blood Brothers of Gor, page 47


A veiled woman was hawking dates by the tefa. Tribesmen of Gor, page 46


Over there," I said, "are some Ka-la-na trees. Wait here and I'll gather some fruit." Tarnsman of Gor, page 96


The larma is luscious. 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. Renegades of Gor, page 437

Pit Fruit/Hard Larma
I took a slice of the 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, page 267


"Buy melons!" called a fellow next to her, lifting one of the yellowish, red-striped spheres towards me  Tribesmen of Gor, page 45


I had nearly stepped into a basket of plums. Tribesmen of Gor, page 45


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, page 305

Red Olives

Clitus, too, had brought two bottles of Ka-la-na wine, a string of eels, cheese of the Verr, and a sack of red olives from the groves of
Tyros. Raiders of Gor, page 114


I released my grip on the lad's garment. "Who are you?" I asked.
"I am Squash," he said.
"I am Strawberry," said the girl.
"We have been following you," said the lad. Blood Brothers of Gor, page 293

Ta Grapes

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. I had tasted some only once before, having been introduced to them in a feast given in my honour by Lara,
who was Tatrix of the city of Tharna. If they were indeed Ta grapes I supposed they must have come by galley from Cos to Port Kar,
and from Port Kar to the Fair of En'Kara. Port Kar and Cos are hereditary enemies, but such traditions would not be likely to
preclude some profitable smuggling. But perhaps they were not Ta grapes for Cos was far distant, and even if carried by tarns, the
grapes would probably not seem so fresh. Priest-Kings of Gor, page 44


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 peach like 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, page 59



"This is warmed chocolate," I said, pleased. It was very rich and creamy. Kajira of Gor, page 61

Mint Sticks

A type of candy, not described

He yelled something raucous and ribald. It had to do with "tastas" or "stick candies." These are not candies, incidentally, like sticks,
as, for example, licorice or peppermint sticks, but soft, rounded, succulent candies, usually covered in a coating of syrup or fudge,
rather in the nature of the caramel apple, but much smaller, and, like the caramel apple, mounted on sticks. The candy is prepared
and then the stick, from the bottom, is thrust up, deeply, into it. It is then ready to be eaten. Dancer of Gor, page 81
