Introduction
Fruits and Vegetables is a set of 1/35 resin castings from Matho Models, item 35051.

Fruits and Vegetables
Fruits and Vegetables is a set of six unpainted resin castings of fruit and veggies packed in:
    1 bag

    2 baskets

    3 wooden crates

Unfortunately, each piece has quite a bit of pour block to remove.
Detail
Except for the carrots and the bag of grain, I can't tell if the produce is mean to simulate a particular crop. Fortunately, many fruits and veggies look alike.

What are different are the wicker baskets: 1 large, 1 small. They are crisply cast. The produce is all nicely rendered.

Harvest
Fruits and Vegetables is a set of 1/35 resin items that can be used in almost any location and era. Each of the six pieces are crisply cast with nicely rendered produce. Aside from the pour blocks, there isn't anything meaningful to complain about.

This set should be very popular. Highly recommended.

Please remember to tell Matho Models and retailers that you saw this set here - on Armorama.
SUMMARY
Highs: Crisply cast with nicely rendered produce.

Verdict: FRUITS AND VEGETABLES is one of those sets that can be used in almost any location and era.

I'm a professional pilot with a degree in art. My first model was an AMT semi dump truck. Then Monogram's Lunar Lander right after the lunar landing. Next, Revell's 1/32 Bf-109G...cried havoc and released the dogs of modeling! My interests--if built before 1900, or after 1955, then I proba...
