Epic Tomatoes, by Craig LeHoullier #8265
The title of this book is most appropriate because it is an epic, comprehensive work. The author has grown more than 1,200 tomato varieties and introduced heirlooms such as Cherokee Purple to the trade. Here he tells the stories of many of the tomatoes he's grown, shares his ten most favorite tomatoes, and surveys more than 200 others. He also goes into depth on how to grow tomatoes--from planting seeds, to cultivating the plants, to collecting seeds to save. Packed with information and lots of colorful phtographs, this is the manual that every serious tomato grower (and beginner alike) must have! 256 pages, full-color photographs.
