Uncommon Fruits for Every Garden

Uncommon Fruits for Every Garden Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Lee Reich provides a valuable guide to uncommon fruits and berries, which add an adventurous flavor to any garden. Though names like jujube, juneberry, maypop, and shipova may seem exotic at first glance, these fruits offer ample rewards to the gardener willing to go only slightly off the beaten path at local nurseries. Reliable even in the toughest garden situations, cold-hardy, and pest- and disease-resistant, they are as enticing to the beginner as to the advanced gardener. This expanded sequel to the author's celebrated Uncommon Fruits Worthy of Attention offers new fruits, new varieties, and new photos and illustrations to entice the reader into an exciting world of garden pleasure.

Book News Annotation:

Reich's interest in the history of food, as well as his knowledge of cultivation, make this volume both interesting to read and practical. The earliest descriptions and uses of each fruit are incorporated into detailed discussion of their cultivation, propagation, and maintenance. Juneberry, beach plum, alpine and musk strawberries, pawpaw, raisin tree, lingonberry, and Nanking cherry are some of the fruits described.
Annotation 2004 Book News, Inc., Portland, OR (booknews.com)
