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.
