Book review “Edible”
[photo caption: Edible indeed- a papaya in full fruit at the US Botanic gardens, Washington, DC].
I received the book “Edible: An Illustrated Guide to the World’s Food Plants” (2008, National Geographic,
The book starts with a brief history of plants being turned into food, trade and conquest, and the “green future.” Then it is divided into sections on fruits, vegetables, grains, nuts, herbs, spices, beverage plants and sugars.
So, would I welcome this book again? Yes, I would. I am happy to have it (and I did read it cover to cover). If I were the editor would I make some changes? Yes, indeed.
Happy garden reading!
