Mangos, A Family Tradition
David Cates has written a delightful story about his family’s history and how growing
mangos and other tropical fruits in the Bahamas influenced him. Imagine
taking a refreshing dip in the crystal-clear waters of the Atlantic on a balmy afternoon
while eating a mango whose flavor is enhanced by dipping it into the sea.
 
A Tale of Two Nectarines: Stanwick and Snow Queen
For a number of years, seeming inconsistencies in common references to two fi ne
nectarines known as Stanwick and Snow Queen bothered David Karp. Why were
people getting the two confused? Because this mix-up troubled him, he assiduously
saved and organized all the tidbits of information he had picked up in his travels as
a freelance writer on produce; he hoped that one day he might solve the mystery.
It turns out that the inconsistencies were real; at long last David runs down his old
leads and puts this small but nagging question to rest. And so the mystery is solved.
 
High-Density Planting and Homestead Horticulture
This story shows that Duane Wieden is dead serious in his approach to growing
fruit, about farming in general and especially about doing it with minimal impact to
the environment or to natural systems. Such things require a lot of elbow grease.
