"When I have a question about fruit growing I always go to one of Lee Reich's books. Here's another to add to that great resource." --Eliot Coleman, former Executive Director of the International Federation of Organic Agriculture Movements (IFOAM) and organic advisor to the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
"Lee Reich is truly the Pied Piper of fruit growing. Every page of this book makes you want to tuck yet another fruiting plant into the landscape. And Lee's way of making fruit science simple and clear gives you the confidence to do it."
--Barbara Damrosch, author of "The Garden Primer"
"This is THE book for growing fruit, whether for home use or for the farmer wanting to add profitable diversity to the farm stand. In the true spirit of organic, Lee Reich takes you step-by-step through what, where, and how to grow without toxic sprays -- working with, rather than against, nature for a bounty of great-tasting, healthful fruit." --Ron Khosla, Organic Advisor to the Food and Agriculture Organization of the UN and founder Certified Naturally Grown

I didn't find it as useful as I had hoped for because it covered fruit trees and fruits that I am not interested in....could have used more intensive info on more common fruitsPublished 7 months ago by H. Rowe

The book is a little to general for what I was looking for and covers a lot of fruit that I am unable to grow. It is a good book though.Published 17 months ago by Garden Lady
