By: Gregory M Levin
For more than forty years, Dr. Gregory Levin trekked across Central Asia and the Trans-Caucasus in search of rare, endangered and mysterious wild pomegranates. His home was a remote Soviet station in the mountains that separate Turkmenistan from Iran. After the break-up of the Soviet Union, he found himself exiled from his own hidden Eden and his collection of 1,117 pomegranates. Gregory Levin has written a fascinating memoir of his life with pomegranates. He illuminates the botany, the history and myths, the astonishing range of tastes, and the health benefits - from folklore to pharmaceuticals- that make it the wonder fruit of our time.
"I came for the pomegranate botany and stayed for the human story." - David Silverstein, Calfornia Rare Fruit Growers
