Features

 
A Visit With Bernard King
On one of his many fruit-finding trips to exotic parts of the world, Maurice Kong
stopped off for a few days in New Zealand to visit Bernard King, a longtime friend
of CRFG and himself a contributor to the Fruit Gardener. Bernard grows some very
interesting plants, and of course has friends who do so as well. Read on and see.
 
2006 Fruit Shoot Winners
Once again Emory Walton has conducted a successful photo competition and at the
end selected the winners. The colorful results are displayed in the center spread.
 
How-To: Make a Custom Planting Container
Duane Wieden needed tall pots for growing seedling rootstocks of species that develop
long taproots. The solution he came up with certainly met his needs; it is cost effective
up front, as he explains, and makes for fairly easy planting out. Besides the
method’s efficacy, its simplicity is truly stunning, and offers other benefi ts as well.
 
The Source of Chocolate
By now, many readers know they are in for some interesting information when they
see Felipe Osborne Shea’s byline. Felipe certainly doesn’t disappoint with this story.
It is likely that many will know a lot more about chocolate upon reaching the end.
 
A Little Bit More About the Eugenias
Evan Marks picks up on the Eugenia articles in the January & February 2005 issue
with a closer look at two of those species. Known in Costa Rica and regionally as
Arazá and Victoriana, these two fruits are prized as juice coolers in summertime.
