Description
Delicious, lethal, hallucinogenic and medicinal, fruits have led nations to war, fueled dictatorships, and lured people into new worlds. An expedition through the fascinating world of fruit, this is the engrossing story of some of earth's most desired foods.

"A delectable journey through jungles, street markets and orchards in search of the world's most exotic fruits. [Adam] Gollner's quest for the forbidden coco-de-mer, his love affair with the chupa-chupa and his durian-induced intoxication make him as fascinating a narrator as the fruit hunters, farmers and scientists he encounters along the way. I loved taking this culinary adventure with Gollner—anyone who brings mangosteens to parties is welcome at my table."—Amy Stewart
