Product description


''Finally, a reliable work on the history of the tomato in America! The author, a thorough researcher and delightful writer, presents facts with authority and myths with exposure... The definitive study on the subject.'' -- John F. Swenson, Chicago Botanic Garden ''Andrew F. Smith easily qualifies as the major-domo of tomato history.'' -- Chicago Tribune ''At last, at long last, the true history of the tomato in the United States is being told.'' -- Karen Hess, Food Heritage Press ''Smith's work is fascinating reading... This volume immerses us in tomato lore and whets our appetite for a juicy bite of that scarlet fruit.'' -- Wilson Library Bulletin ''A thorough and useful reference, making available masses of material not otherwise available.'' -- Library Journal
