Anyone who has toured Monticello during the spring and summer months has seen the extensive fruit gardens that are as much a part of Thomas Jefferson's legacy as his seven-day clock and dumbwaiter. Cultivating over 170 varieties of temperate fruits, Jefferson was an ambitious and devoted gardener whose surviving horticultural plans are among the most detailed of the period.

Since 1982 Jefferson's fruit plantings, his orchards, vineyards, berry squares, and nursery, have been gradually and painstakingly re-created at Monticello. Locating the many exotic varieties and fancy fruits has been a challenge to restorers, often forcing them to import seeds and cuttings from around the world. Paper back, 222 pages, 181 illustrations.

Author Peter J. Hatch is Director of Gardens and Grounds at Monticello.
