- When the Deliveries Stopped
- No one enjoys writing about anyone passing away, especially not someone close. Ian Crown
has written a heartfelt tribute to his longtime friend and fellow fruit lover, Felipe Osborne
Shea. Although lamenting the loss of a friend, Ian shares with us some precious memories.
- What is a Jujube?
- Mel Smith offers another brief look at Rock Front Ranch, a jujube-growing operation. It is
just one of the many interesting tour locations that are listed on the list of things to do and
places to see at this year’s Festival of Fruit in San Luis Obispo. Plan to be there in August.
- Growing Pineapple in Malibu
- This how-to article from Agnes Philpot could seem to some longtime readers to be rather
ho-hum stuff. Okay; it is said that there’s nothing new under the sun. While this is not
a new idea, it is quite possible that many readers, especially the younger ones, might be
surprised to learn how easy it is to propagate pineapples. Such common-sense material may
turn out to be this writer’s hallmark. Watch for more articles from this general direction.
- Beaumont Macadamia
- Don Winterstein has an inquiring mind. Having been a career scientist, he is a natural
skeptic. Moreover, he has little reluctance to try new ideas and seemingly no fear of the
unorthodox for getting results. So when he finds himself in a fruit-growing dilemma, he
pretty much considers it more a challenge than an obstacle. This article is like that. Yes, it is.
- Fresh Juice and Juicing in Bangkok
- This juicy article from Bev Alfeld is another look at the countless people, places and things in
Southeast Asia that are so different from our way of life. Yet in some ways the habits and diets
of folks in such distant places are amazing in their straightforward, common-sense approaches.
- A Very Old Walnut Graft
- Have you ever wished for some very large, old walnut lumber for making something? Keith
Borglum has some, but he made an unexpected discovery while milling it out into huge slabs.
- Ask the Experts—GUAVA TYPES, PINEAPPLE, SICK PLUM.
