Notes from a Balcony Gardener
Tynan Wyatt may well be the tip of the proverbial iceberg in terms of folks who doggedly insist upon growing fruit-bearing plants on premises far less expansive than single-family dwellings. Maybe size doesn't matter quite so much after all.
 
The Pitahaya's Arrival
Who could resist Edgar Valdivia's ebullience as he proffers colorful, succulent samples of his favorite cross-pollinated pitahayas for a taste test? The flavor of these hybrids is amazing, and quite apart from the blandness many have come to expect from dragon fruits, as they will learn during the 2010 Festival of Fruit. In this article, Edgar offers up a broad look at the pitahaya and the industry that has at last begun to develop around it. The story is followed by festival information.
 
The Tropical Fruit Paradise of Trinidad
Bassem Samaan is a Pennsylvania snowbird who seems to have become especially enamored of Trinidad and its sights and sounds, and most certainly its wonderful assortment of tropical fruits. This place, in the North Atlantic a few degrees north of the Equator and just off of Venezuela's coast, is a veritable rare fruit crossroad.
