    "This is a great book and an obvious classic in the fruits and vegetables in the title genre of books. I have always been particularly drawn to this book as a rye enthusiast and felt like I was on a journey with the main character of the book. Sometimes I felt like his thoughts were my own and vice versa, or even that he and I were the same person. It's hard to tell sometimes. Instead I will just tell you how great this book is and how much everyone needs to read it."

    "This book is a classic book that I think everyone should read. Although it doesn't have a vegetable in the title, it does have a fruit--Huckleberry-- in the title. Consequently, I don't know that it qualifies for being the best book with fruits and vegetables in the title, but it does qualify for being the among the best books with a fruit in the title. "

    "Holistic principles go far beyond "certified organic" growing principles, focusing on soil health and a diversity of native flora and fauna to create a healthy orchard that produces healthy fruit without undue damage by disease or pests. By contrast, organic growers have access to quite an impressive arsenal of powerful "organic" poisons to control disease and pests. Phillips seeks to avoid the use of such poisons, partly because they can also harm not only soil life but also beneficial insects. But he's also the practical sort and will resort to "organic" controls when it's a matter of life or death for his trees or crop. But the intent is to avoid such measures."
