GREAT insights! The lemon pie references had flown right past me. I think Doran Martell's swollen joints are also compared to overripe fruits. If the bursting melons tend to appear before Joffrey, and we know the wildfire grenades were produced for Aerys, maybe there is a mad king association with overripe fruit? I love Prince Doran and hate to think that he might be crazed, but he is definitely obsessed with revenge. The only fruit at Winterfell is either imported or grown in the glass house - no fruit is native to the landscape, if I recall correctly; certainly lemons are imported. Maybe that's a way of showing that Winterfell mostly steered clear of the southron "food fights" and fruit weapons. Great point about Ser Dontos and teeth, too. Lots to ponder in your post. Thanks!
