Melons For The Passionate Grower

“A stunning portfolio . . . impossible to read without wanting to grow the fruits it contains, grow them passionately and ensure that they keep being grown. . .  The rarest of garden books, the kind that seems utterly complete and completely useful.”—The New York Times

In the same way that passionate gardeners rescued heirloom tomatoes and roses from oblivion and brought back old varieties full of character, flavor, and fragrance, so Amy Goldman has made it part of her life’s work to bring back the amazing heirloom melon. Melons for the Passionate Grower, her first book, was published by Artisan in 2002. Victor Schrager’s photographs of Amy’s homegrown melons are exquisitely rendered.”
