The Fruits and Fruit Trees of Monticello

Lavishly illustrated, Peter Hatch's The Fruits and Fruit Trees of Monticello is not only a detailed history of Jefferson's gardens and their re-creation but a virtual encyclopedia of early American pomology. Hatch argues that fruit growing and horticulture were in fact synonymous terms in early America, influenced primarily by the importance of alcoholic beverages to the American diet. One historian has remarked how significant it was when Americans began eating their fruit instead of drinking it. The story of Jefferson's struggle to produce a useful and ornamental garden on a grand scale - so carefully documented in his letters and papers - makes for fascinating reading. His fruitery was unique in being both an Old World fruit garden and a colonial farm orchard; seedling peaches and Virginia cider apples were planted alongside French apricots, Spanish almonds, and English plums. His horticultural vision was far-reaching in scope and characteristically ahead of its time. The history of fruit growing at Monticello is a reflection of Jefferson's spirit: expansive, optimistic, epicurean, innocent, and altogether American.

""Pomologist William Coxe (1762-1831) is considered to be one of the foremost fruit growers in America. At his home in Burlington, NJ, he experimented with new varieties of fruits, many based on the specimens he collected both in the United States and abroad. This 1817 work is considered by many to be the authoritative work on fruit culture of the colonial and revolutionary periods.""
