On a Treasure Hunt for the Jujube Tree
This is a two-part series on jujubes written 25 years ago by our much-admired Roger Meyer, who passed away in late November. Roger’s treasure hunt for jujube trees led him eventually to devote substantial time and energy to the establishment of jujube in the fruit world of the U.S. Something so close to him and his interests seemed a most fitting accompaniment to a more comprehensive tribute to him than was possible in the January & February issue.
 
Coconuts and Coco-Sap in Thailand
Each year in the colder, darker months, Beverly Alfeld gets a case of the midwinter blues. You might call it cabin fever. Her cure for this is traveling to warmer climes in search of a change of pace, and often on a quest for the unusual. This is a travelogue about Thailand.
 
Goodbye, Pacay
Don Winterstein’s fruit tree adventures continue. This is an interesting account of how he ended up with an unproductive and very uncooperative pacay tree and how he dealt with it.
 
Small Space, Big Harvest
Mel Smith seems to be hitting his stride with these articles recounting visits to the fruit gardens of friends. This one is about Marv & Pett Daniels’ unusually compact fruit garden.
