We continue to tell about decent social media accounts through which the whole world can be viewed.
The habit of classifying everything was instilled in us from childhood: surely everyone will fondly remember how he compiled a herbarium or carefully redrawn an oak leaf for a lesson in natural history. Old Fruit Pictures' Twitter evokes about the same feeling - it is both old-fashioned, pedantic and relevant in a world where they finally began to respect and appreciate the variety of everything, whether it is the shape of human noses or varieties of apples. And we are firmly convinced that by noticing one thing, we will learn to notice and love another.
In fact, watercolors and drawings from the bottomless USDA archive, collected between 1886 and 1942, are uploaded here several times a day. Apples alone (not always perfect) have documented 3604 varieties during this time by the ministry's staff artists (stop us from comparing with the variety of beauty in female genitalia). You can, of course, call it a catalog of meaningless knowledge - but there is some special charm in studying the outlandish names of strawberry or grape varieties, as well as the names of the artists who captured them.
