Hunting Honeybee Hitchhikers
Three articles by Jan Suszkiw of the USDA Agricultural Research Service provide some insight into parasites that afflict honeybees, pathogens that relatively few people are aware of and fewer are concerned about.
Hooked on Yuzu
Readers will be interested in this reprint from Restaurant Digest, an article by Dara Bunjon about a little-known culinary treasure that is also cold-hardy.
Enter the Dragon Fruit
In another interesting tale, David Karp provides a vivid look at the fledgling pitahaya-growing industry: colorful intriguing fruit and the intrigue of secrecy.
Breeding Cold-Hardy Citrus in Oregon’s Willamette Valley
Martin Axford has been thinking for years about how he might propagate cold-hardy citrus that will thrive in the cool, damp environs of the Willamette Valley.
An Invitation to Thailand
Maurice Kong got a news release not long ago, about Thailand’s Second Annual Symposium on Lychees, Longans, Rambutans and other Sapindaceae plants. In a short pictorial, he shares information with us on what it’s all about and how to get there.
