If you are interested in growing fruit, this is the society for you. Four times a year, they put out a magazine called Pome News. It is full of great stories, How to, recipes and much more. I just received my winter 2013 issue. Homemade apple sauce is one I need to try out. Spices added are ginger, anise, cloves and cardamon. Mmm sounds delicious. Other interesting writeups include a description of a trip to some old orchards and identifying the apple varieties. Fascinating. Another interesting How-to article on grafting onto old trees.
