Rosie Sanders is widely recognized as one of Britain's leading botanical artists. She has been awarded five Gold medals by the Royal Horticultural Society and won the Royal Academy miniature award. Best known for her superlative studies of fruit, apples in particular, Rosie has devoted much of her time recording old and present varieties culminating in this book. She lives on the edge of Dartmoor in Devon.Harry Baker was fruit officer for many years at the Royal Horticultural Society and is one of Britain's foremost authorities on apple growing.From Publishers Weekly:
Someday, American consumers may demand and consistently get apples with crunch and full flavor, free of blandness. Only then will this guide to 122 kinds of apples, observed in careful prose and splendid watercolors, be fully appreciated. The author's descriptions of apple varieties, presented in chart format, cover shape and size of fruit, core, seeds and tree; color; flavor; and month(s) of fruit-bearing. Her final chapter advises readers on apple growing: choice of site, planting, pruning, diseases and pests. The pity is that Sanders, a prize-winning botanical artist, concerns herself mainly with English apples. These include many grown in the United States (MacIntosh, Granny Smith, Gravenstein), but others raised here are omitted, from new species (Freedom, Empire) to venerable family members (Winesap, Spitzenburg). Regrettably, a reliable means of identifying apple trees also goes unmentioned.
