Tropical Fruit


by Desmond Tate

Book Description

A hundred-and-fifty-years ago citizens of the United States had never seen a banana, and people in Moscow had never eaten an orange. Today, there are still dozens of species of lush, nutritious tropical fruits largely unknown outside their native habitats. This book takes us to the source, into the exotic regions where tropical fruits grow. With exquisite botanical paintings commissioned especially for this book, along with full color photographs, Tropical Fruit delves into botanical qualities of each fruit and explains how, with care, they can be grown in other regions. Tropical Fruit also offers readers recipes from the fruits' native lands that will make real show-stoppers at home. Art, botany, travelogue and cookbook, this book is a lush and rewarding blend-and surely one of the most satisfying gift books.
