[00:01.58]Of the fruits of the year

[00:04.23]I give my vote to the orange.

[00:06.59]In the first place it is a perennial—if not in actual fact,

[00:11.83]at least in the greengrocer's shop.

[00:14.08] On the days when dessert is a name

[00:17.42] given to a handful of chocolates

[00:18.97] and a little preserved ginger ,

[00:21.23]when macédoine de fruits

[00:25.85] is the title bestowed on some raisins and two prunes,

[00:28.43]then the orange, however sour,

[00:30.33] comes nobly to the rescue;

[00:31.59] and on those other days of plenty

[00:34.00] when cherries and strawberries

[00:36.14] riot together upon the table,

[00:38.67] the orange, sweeter than ever,

[00:40.50] is still there to hold its own.

[00:42.56]Bread and butter, beef and mutton, eggs and bacon,

[00:46.56]are not more necessary to an ordered existence

[00:49.95]than the orange.

[00:51.67]It is well that the commonest fruit should be also the best.

[00:55.50]Of the virtues of the orange I have not room fully to speak.

[01:00.37]It has properties of health giving,

[01:02.96]as it cures influenza and establishes the complexion.

[01:06.79]It is clean, for whoever handles it on its way to your table

[01:11.53] but handles its outer covering,

[01:14.12] its top coat, which is left in the hall. It is round,

[01:17.96] and forms an excellent substitute

[01:20.64]with the young for a cricket ball.

[01:22.32]The pips can be flicked at your enemies,

[01:24.82]and quite a small piece of peel makes a slide for an old gentleman.

[01:29.95]But all this would count nothing

[01:32.46]had not the orange such delightful qualities of taste.

[01:35.99]I dare not let myself go upon this subject.

[01:39.23] I am a slave to its sweetness.

[01:41.59]Yet with the orange we go live year in and year out.

[01:45.82] That speaks well for the orange.

[01:48.35]The fact is that there is an honesty about the orange

[01:51.70] which appeals to all of us.

[01:53.60]If it is going to be bad—for the best of us are bad sometimes—

[01:57.89]it begins to be bad from the outside,

[02:00.57] not from the inside.

[02:02.11]How many a pear

[02:03.46]which presents a blooming face to the world

[02:06.22] is rotten at the core.

[02:08.02] How many an innocent-looking apple

[02:10.52] is harboring a worm in the bud.

[02:12.82] But the orange has no secret faults.

[02:15.76] Its outside is a mirror of its inside,

[02:18.64]and if you are quick

[02:20.45] you can tell the shopman so

[02:22.44]before he slips it into the bag.
