Finding Information-Origins & History of Vegetable Varieties

Category: Plants Paths--Food's Journey | Posted: Tue Mar 11, 2008 5:08 pm

After posting about this on another site, I thought it would be useful
here because it is fascinating
and something in which many gardeners are interested.

Following are some websites & books on the subject.
