Just picked up a dining table, six chairs, buffet and china hutch made from something called ‘fruitwood’. I googled the word and discovered that fruitwood was commonly used in french colonial furniture making and that’s the style it’s in, though of early ’60s vintage. My dictionary and knowledge of the english language tells me that fruitwood will be the wood of a fruit bearing tree which isn’t so limited a species. Can anyone tell me a little about ‘fruitwood’…if there is such a plant?
Thanks for your time. Chris
