MARMALADE (adopted from Fr. marmelade, from marmelo, a quince, derived through the Lat. melimelum, from Gr. AiXt, honey, and ai Xov, an apple, an apple grafted on a quince), a preserve originally made of quinces, but now commonly of Seville oranges. The " marmalade-tree " (Lucuma mammosa) bears a fruit whose thick pulp resembles marmalade and is called natural marmalade. " Marmalade box " is the name of the fruit of the Genipa Americana, which opens in the same manner as a walnut, the nut being replaced by a soft pulp.
