I'm particularly interested in his The Variation of Plants and Animals Under Domestication, an oft forgotten work by Darwin, but very interesting regardless. The book is full of discussions of diversity in fruits, and, in addition to the book, the archive has several other notes and articles on fruit, including this discussion of seedling fruit trees. A quick overview suggests that he was a big fan of stone fruit.
