E is for elderberries with water retention
F is for figs with a fungal infection
G is for grapes with bad flakey skin
H is for rose hips that need replacing
I is for incredible jumping plum disease
J is for juniper with knobbly knees
K is for kiwi fruit with galloping scurf
L is for lychees all covered in fluff
M is for mango with in-growing pips
N is for nectarine with old dry chapped lips
O is for oranges suffering from scurvy
P is for pineapple all jumpy and nervy
Q is for quince who are feeling unwell
R is for raspberries beginning to smell
S is for satsumas full of all kinds of woes
