Editorial Reviews


"For those gardeners who, like me, are always searching for something a bit out of the ordinary for both their gardens and their tummies, this book is a gem."
—Rita Pelczar, American Gardener, July/August 2004

“This book is ideal for teaching and discussion.  I can find no weaknesses in it.”

"If only I’d found Uncommon Fruits for Every Garden sooner!”

Book Description

Though names like jujube, juneberry, maypop, and shipova may seem exotic, these fruits offer ample rewards to the gardener willing to go only slightly off the beaten path at local nurseries. They are reliable even in the toughest garden situations, cold-hardy, and pest- and disease-resistant. --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.

More About the Author

Lee Reich, PhD started out pursuing an academic career, a trajectory that came to an abrupt halt during his second year in graduate school while studying quantum chemistry. He dropped out, moved to Vermont to ponder his next move, and, after a year, immersed himself in the study and practice of agriculture: reading popular and academic works, returning to academia by entering graduate school in agriculture, and gardening like a madman.

Three graduate degrees, work with the U.S. Department of Agriculture and Cornell University, and much dirt under his fingernails later, he went off on his own as a freelance horticultural writer, consultant, and lecturer.

Out in the backyard, the garden developed and garnered awards ("Prettiest Vegetable Garden: from Organic Gardening magazine, "Best Vegetable Garden" from National Gardening magazine), and was featured in the New York Times and Martha Stewart Living. The garden also grew: Lee now considers himself a farmdener (more than a gardener, less than a farmer), tending his farmden in a small river valley in New York's beautiful Hudson River Valley. His farmden provides inspiration for his writing, a testing and observation ground for new plants, especially fruits, and, of course, plenty of delicious, healthful fruits and vegetables.
