Pineapples should be sliced; pears, peaches and plums should be halved after removing the skins; cherries, strawberries and similar fruit are iced with the stems on; and from oranges and lemons every particle of pith is removed before dividing the former into sections and the latter into slices (see Oranges, Iced).
