Description
Presented in a charmingly old-fashioned format—the unjacketed cover features a hand-lettered font with a tipped-in color plate—and illustrated with naturalist paintings throughout, this follow-up to 75 Exciting Vegetables for Your Garden features garden writer, lecturer, and NPR commentator Jack Staub's quirky profiles of 75 remarkable fruits. Straub provides a history of each plant, thoughts and tips on growing it, and simple recipes for serving them up in salads, side dishes, breads, and desserts. Ellen Buchert's watercolored pen and ink drawings capture the lush produce as it is found in the garden.

"Gardeners passionate about heirloom produce will read Jack Staub's 75 Remarkable Fruits for Your Garden with interest. Tips on cultivating chokeberries, kumquats, quinces, and other old fashioned fruits are interwoven with lore and preparation hints."—Town and Country
