Fruit Shoot 2010 Photo Contest Winners
Emory Walton and his panel of diligent judges have served up yet another generous
helping of some of the most colorful rare fruit images that money can’t buy.
 
Pomona Pictorial: Festival of Fruit 2010
Rumor is that the Festival of Fruit 2010 held at Cal Poly Pomona might be the most
successful ever. Hard to say, but a wealth of photos seem to point to the possibility.
 
Tejocote: No Longer Forbidden
David Karp offers a rare treat: a first look at the once-smuggled tejocote, a fruit
long prized in Mexico and the American Southwest as a base for making seasonal
latino ponche. Tejocote is now commercially available, thanks to U.S. growers.
 
International Fruit Hunter
John Torgrimson of Seed Savers Exchange recently wrote an interesting piece
about David Karp, ofttime Fruit Gardener contributor. It was a vivid vignette of
David and just who he is, a tribute we decided was well worth reiterating here.

We can’t imagine how Nick Lolonis recalls all these larger-than-life accounts of
dealing with the adversities of fruit tree cultivation. But we’re glad that he does.

that Bev Alfeld loves tromping around in the mud at a farm? You’d better believe it.
