This Heritage Fruits & Vegetableswill be a great gift book idea for her this Christmas!
A sumptuous celebration in words and photographs of the fascinating riches of heritage fruits and vegetables.

It offers full descriptions of each type of fruit and vegetable and includes stories about their origins, development, the reception they received upon introduction to various countries, as well as the folklore associated with them. No one interested in food, plant cultivation or history will fail to be captivated by this glorious tribute to the food we so often take for granted.
