Product description

Review

"A great source of inspiration" (Simon Tiffin Telegraph)

"Scholarly and fascinating ... conjures a lost world from the humble gooseberry, leek and apple" (Jane Shilling The Times)

"Attractive anecdotal book" (Financial Times)

"Delightful celebration of Britain's forgotten fruit and veg ... an intriguing hybrid of narrative history and encyclopaedia" (Guardian)

"[A] captivating book ... written with a wonderfully light and assured touch" (Anna Pavord Gardens Illustrated)

Review

...my favourite book of the year. Written with passion and real knowledge of his subject ... you will be inspired.

From D'Arcy Spice apples to Orange Jelly turnips, all sorts of fruit and vegetable varieties are lovingly described here ... fascinating ... bound to inspire.

... makes the reader behave as though they are clutching a gripping novel ... much more than a historical guide.
