wrong virus, "of iris" is correct, and think "bloody Al!" if not too inconvenient :wink:

not getting on very fast with this, tho' it has taught me the linguistic link between "vetch" and Latin "vicia"; both are beany, and I suppose "sprouting" is reproducing, so I wondered if "beansprout" might be there somewhere?

Sorry, but entirely wrong track, animist. The vetch is specifically "sweet". If you go through its reproductive process, you may find a word that rhymes with a synonym for torque.

Perhaps it would help if I augmented the clue slightly:

Let's torque for a second about how sweetly vetch reproduces.

well, your mention of "second" I eventually linked up, in my researches on torque, with "moment" - ? Not much progress on the sweet vetch front, unless the answer is "foment moment"

'moment' is correct. How are sweet vetch's seeds encapsulated?

even after some internet searches, I really dunno - maybe Alan C or some other gardener could get in here. I also chekt for rhymes with "moment" and not a lot came up

Trying to give clues without directly giving the solution: a Google search on "general fruit terminology" may prove to be - er - fruitful.

Animist, just a note to let you know that I am up to my eyeballs in work (deadline to meet!), so I'll probably not get around to this game for a few weeks.
