The most-grown plant of American gardens is lovingly and knowledgeably presented by Sheila Buff, a wise gardener and careful researcher, in The Great Tomato Book. Myths topple before the well-displayed historical and horticultural information in this authoritative, but never dull, treasure. For the grower there are splendid directions from seed selection to seed saving and all of the steps along the way. There are recipes to try and savor, as well as solid facts for those quiet moments in the armchair.
If you love tomatoes, get this book!
