“The Melon” represents nine years of cultivating, studying, tasting and having Victor Schrager on hand to photograph 125 kinds of melons at her farm in Rhinebeck in the Hudson Valley.
“The Melon” is Amy Goldman’s fifth book, and as with her other titles, it’s a visual stunner and a revelation. By Florence Fabricant in The New York Times.
The taste of melons at their peak, oozing honey, is incomparable, as is the air, sweet-smelling with muskmelon on an August night.” Thus begins the first chapter of Amy Goldman Fowler’s latest book, “The Melon”, an ode to the Cucurbitacae family.
Created over the course of nine years, The Melon is both an information-packed resource and a visual delight. This definitive compendium on melon and watermelon reflects recent research findings and Goldman’s growth as a gardener since the publication in 2002 of her award-winning book, Melons for the Passionate Grower.
