Excerpt from Elliott's Fruit Book: Or, the American Fruit-Brower's Guide in Orchard and Garden It will be found, on examination, that I have credited every author with whatever I have extracted from his works: that all descriptions of fruits, made by others, have attached thereto the initials of the author's name, or abbreviations of the title of the work from which they were taken. I have continued my classification mainly as in previous Editions, simply changing the terms designating their classes. Of the descriptions of fruit, some explanation may be necessary. First, is given the standard name in capitals. Below this are placed, in Smaller type, the various synonyms, or local names, by which the dme fruit is known in various countries, or parts of the country. The text, descriptive of nearly every valuable variety, will be found to explain in what section of country, and in what soil it succeeds best. Having given more attention to Southern fruits, and their seasons, than formerly, and finding many to succeed well South, that have been superseded North and East, I have introduced them throughout the work; hence, I think it will be found as well adapted to that as to other portions of the United States.

The Fruits and Fruit Trees of Monticello

Lavishly illustrated, Peter Hatch's The Fruits and Fruit Trees of Monticello is not only a detailed history of Jefferson's gardens and their re-creation but a virtual encyclopedia of early American pomology. Hatch argues that fruit growing and horticulture were in fact synonymous terms in early America, influenced primarily by the importance of alcoholic beverages to the American diet. One historian has remarked how significant it was when Americans began eating their fruit instead of drinking it. The story of Jefferson's struggle to produce a useful and ornamental garden on a grand scale - so carefully documented in his letters and papers - makes for fascinating reading. His fruitery was unique in being both an Old World fruit garden and a colonial farm orchard; seedling peaches and Virginia cider apples were planted alongside French apricots, Spanish almonds, and English plums. His horticultural vision was far-reaching in scope and characteristically ahead of its time. The history of fruit growing at Monticello is a reflection of Jefferson's spirit: expansive, optimistic, epicurean, innocent, and altogether American.

A map and key help identify which destinations will require some planning and which can be easily enjoyed, depending on where readers live or work. Helpful descriptions focus on the special features or distinctive ambience of each place or happening. A chapter on retail sources is packed with advice: where to buy native or organically raised plants; how to find specialty shops and nurseries devoted to specific kinds of plants, such as African violets, bonsai, tropicals, roses, orchids, and cacti;· which retailers offer fountains, benches, sculptures, and antique garden accessories. At the end of the book, Houston steers readers to her recommended garden books and websites. Anyone interested in exploring the gardening scene in Houston and surrounding areas—whether resident or visitor, participant or spectator—will discover in this book much to do and share with family, friends, and fellow gardeners.
