Summary
  • "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. As useful as it is inspiring, this volume emphasizes the practicalities of plant selection (a thorough source list is included), cultivation, propagation, and maintenance. Importantly for the environment, good harvests are possible from these tough plants without the rigorous spraying or fussy pruning required of more familiar tree fruits. Nearly all the fruits in this book offer year-round ornamental interest even when not in fruit or flower
  • Graced by beautifully pen-and-ink drawings, colourful photos, and the author's own eloquent style, Uncommon Fruits for Every Garden is a delightful book in the tradition of classic garden writing. Each gardener who reads this book is only a growing season away from enriching the home table with unexpected delicacies."--BOOK JACKET
