Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Inspired by the local-food movement, many Americans are turning their yards into miniature orchards, growing apples, kiwis, peaches, and strawberries. Discerning gardeners—tired of the common blackberry—want something new. Jujube, juneberry, maypop, pawpaw, and shipova are just a few of the uncommon—and absolutely tasty—fruits that can be easily grown in the home garden. Lee Reich has chosen 23 fruits that offer mouthwatering rewards to anyone willing to veer off the beaten path. As useful as it is inspiring, this new paperback edition emphasizes the practicalities of plant selection, cultivation, propagation, and maintenance. All plants were carefully chosen for their ease of care, ability to withstand cold, and flavor. Tips for using the fruits in the kitchen are also included. After reading this delightful book, all gardeners will want to grow and enjoy these uncommonly delicious fruits.

Synopsis:

If you are eager to stretch your taste experience, this book offers plenty of suggestions. Each gardener who reads this book is only a growing season away from enriching the home table with unexpected delicacies.

Synopsis:

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.
