I am trying to find out which fruit are pictured on these 1988 Antigua / Barbuda stamps. I've diligently searched the net with no results.

I have a Citrus Philately collection thus the need for identification

The 30c value is likely a grapefruit. I think the size and proportions of the sections of the fruit rule out a lemon.

The 20c rind certainly looks like an orange.

I have pretty much ruled out the $1 due to the apparent "crease" in the skin.

And I "suspect" the 10c is a peach or similar.

Confirmation is eagerly sought and much appreciated.

Jeff

The others look "orangy" but could also be peach, nectarine or ???

The pictures are too small for me to read the Latin names of the fruits. Have you tried googling those names?

The Latin names are of the butterflies.

Given Rod's export list I think the upper right is clementines. My guess is Orange, Clementine, not a clue! and Peaches.
