Uncommon Fruits for Every Garden

Uncommon Fruits for Every Garden Cover

 

 

Excerpt

It is said that if you order strawberries in a deluxe Parisian restuarant, those strawberries will be very small and very expensive (but of course!), but also very delicious. Such fruits are not scaled-down or poorly grown versions of common, cultivated strawberries, but different species of near wild strawberries: the alpine strawberry or the musk strawberry.

Alpine and musk strawberry fruits are expensive not because they are hard to grow, but because the plants are not very productive. This should not preclude growing them in the backyard garden, where flavor is as important as productivity. Fruits of the alpine strawberry have an intense, wild strawberry flavor. The flavor of the musk strawberry tastes like a mixture of strawberry, raspberry, and pineapple. Delicious!

For centuries, Europeans planted both species in gardens and harvested them from the wild. Cultivation of alpine and musk strawberries abated two and a half centuries ago with the development of the "modern" strawberry, which is a large-fruited and prolific hybrid of two American species.

"Synopsis" by ,
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" by ,
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.
