How I Became a Fruit Addict
Most members are likely to have some sort of interesting story about an experience or event that originally sparked their interest in fruit. Shane Lamb & Lisa Lamb of Austin, Texas, have such a story, and decided to share with us what made them become fruit enthusiasts.
 
Establishing a Home Vineyard
Members who have been paying attention won’t be surprised by George Tyson’s energy and thoroughness in his approach to growing fruit of any kind. He’s a self starter and a problem solver. Here is his practical approach to avoiding wasted time and motion in viticulture.
 
The Florida Hog Plum
Jamlady is presenting another Florida indigenous fruit, the hog plum. Ximenia americana
goes by quite a number of other common names. Despite its relative obscurity, this fruit is
widespread and fairly popular except in areas where its semiparasitic nature is a problem.
 
Ask the Experts Revival
Ellen Baker & Freddy Menge responded to the need for having a print version of crfg’s
online question and answer forum. The Fruit Gardener will be better for their willingness.
