"Eat to Live, Not Live to Eat"
John H Weisburger, 2000

These occasional articles are meant to complement the horticultural information on growing the many fruit tree species listed on our site, firstly to discuss one aspect, namely nutrition, of why it's sensible to include lots of fresh fruit in your diet, and secondly why you might bother to grow your own rather than just go out and buy them from retail outlets. In most instances, articles are centred round a study in the recent scientific and medical literature.

Some pages have several articles, so be sure to scan down the entire page.
