Features

A Passion for Pomegranates
Edgar Valdivia goes to the annual Wolfskill pomegranate tastings because of his own
passion for that fruit. As usual, he rubs elbows with a lot of like-minded company.
 
Backyard Grower: Thanks to My Father
Jorge Pelaez was the first to break the ice by giving us a brief personal look at his
favorite fruit, the mango, and his reasons for growing it. We can hope that other
mango aficionados will follow suit and tell us about their successes and setbacks.
 
Home Drying Hachiyas
Lewis Cohen has a neat system worked out for drying his Hachiya persimmons at
home, indoors. Could there be a better combination of simplicity and effectiveness?
 
Fruit Tree Selection in Southwestern Texas
Victor Esche exemplifies many crfg members: he knows what he is doing but
doesn’t brag. But it is to our benefit that he decided to share his experiences.
 
Backyard Grower: My Washington Navel is No More
We have learned that we can rely on Nick Lolonis to share inadvertent discoveries
which can often turn out to be very useful information to the rest of us fruit growers.
 
Puerto Rico Travelogue #1: Land of the Plantain and Breadfruit
Jamlady decided to turn snowbird this winter. She took a trip to Puerto Rico to
shake off the Illinois chill, and found some crfg friends and some great food ideas.
 
Backyard Grower: Doing It All Wrong
Glenda Urmacher volunteered to relate a personal experience with what she had
thought was a peach tree. It proved to be a nectarine and a lesson at the same time.
