Media reviews

"Thanks both to America's growing multiculturalism and to ever more efficient transportation, the market for tropical fruits has become nationwide. More and more unusual fruits appear in the nation's supermarkets, leaving the uninitiated increasingly bewildered. Top-quality, full-colour drawings and informative text make Desmond Tate's Tropical Fruit helpful both for identification of these items and for encouraging their consumption by the uninitiated. Some fruits, such as the "bilimbi" and "snakefruit", may be novel to most readers, but bananas, avocados, and mangoes have already a long history in North America. Yet seeing both the common and the rare together establishes some standards of comparison. Each listing has a recipe to encourage using the fruit and to persuade the uninitiated to try these exotic products."
