Review By: (Port Arthur News)

Seeds of knowledge fill Food Plants book
Avelmoschus esculentus, lady's fingers, gumbo, or what we call okra, is the first alphabetical listing in "Food Plants of the World," a Timber Press guide detailing the leaves, roots and fruits we know and those too exotic for our region.
Ben-Erik van Wyk tells why the worm is in tequila, made from blue agave. A well-preserved worm means the alcohol content is good. The photo of carob pods shows why some consider them the "locusts" that sustained John the Baptist in the desert. The exceptionally uniform seeds are believed to be the original carat weight jewelers still use.
