About this book

Whether you fantasise about having a whole orchard, just a cherry tree in a pot, or even the perfect apple pie, this beautifully illustrated book bridges the gap between the special place orchards hold in our hearts and the practicalities of growing and cooking orchard fruit. Orchards are found worldwide and this comprehensive book explores the traditions of fruit growing and the story of individual fruits, as well as providing delicious recipes and general cultivation advice. As interest grows in sustainability, the preserving of heritage varieties and in organic produce, this book is a timely celebration of tree fruit and its enjoyment.

Apart from fine photography and delightful illustrations, what makes this book stand out is the way the authors weave history into the stories they tell of our different British Fruits. BBC Country File Magazine, April 2010.
