[Sca-cooks] Can you identify the food?

The waiters on the left are holding red cherries and there are some white or 
light colored cherries on the table.  The large fruit below them appears to 
be a melon.  The salver below the melon contains grapes and what appears to 
be small peaches, possibly apricots, with large peaches being on the salver 
to the right with at least one pear.  To the left of the first salver 
appears to be a slice of citron.  There is a pomegranate on the forground 
table.  The yellow fruit beside it may be a quince, or possibly a balsam 
pear.  The fruit on the right front corner of the table behind appear to 
pomegranates and beyond them is a salver of figs.  The waiter descending the 
steps appears to have either figs or olives.   Of course, I've made plenty 
of errors trying to determine foodstuffs from other reproductions, so I 
could easily be wrong.
