Fresh fruit provides us with one of life's great sensual pleasures. It is beautiful to behold on the branch and on the table, fragrant and aromatic to smell, satisfying to touch, delicious and beneficial to eat. In today's world marketplace, there are no seasons and everything is available year-round, including the pleasure of eating a juicy fruit from a faraway place or locally grown.

A Passion for Fruit, with its color-drenched images bringing the beauty of sun-ripened fruits to life, celebrates the rewards of lovingly tended gardens and orchards.
