 c. 1629, quoted in Hogg's "Fruit Manual."

 "Scarce one in twentie of our Nurseriemen doe sell the right,
 but give one for another: for it is an inherent qualitie almost
 hereditarie with most of them to sell to any man an ordinary
 fruit for whatsoever rare fruit he shall ask for: so little are
 they to be trusted."
