A few more links, while I'm at it

Just a collection of interesting fruit news links:

Stinkless Durian: Fans claim this takes the fun out of it, and I suspect it would. I also wonder what it does to the flavor, considering the significant link between aroma and taste? I'd be curious to learn the genetics of durian stink, too.

Bruce Mowrey: Another fruit breeder profile in the mainstream press (too bad they spell the name wrong). Bruce actually now heads the whole breeding department at Driscoll's, so he's not just in charge of strawberries.

Pierce's Disease Resistant Grapes: This is probably deserves a more complete write-up, given the fact that the glassy-winged sharpshooter (the vector for the disease) was recently found in Napa. That could be a very bad thing, though I'd bet it would have to be really, really bad before they started planting hybrid grapes.

Rutgers Blueberry Breeding: A little blurb on the Rutgers blueberry breeding program. The comment about blueberries needing to be blue reminded me of Paul Lyrene's pink blueberry, 'Florida Rose'. A cool idea, even if it hasn't caught on.

Indian Mangoes Finally Arrive: Coming soon to a table near you, through the wonder of irradiation!

Odorless Durian
I imagine it would take more than just the fun out of it.

The Acai berry has one of the highest antioxidant values around. My family and I drink Monavie as it contains 19 fruits including the ACAI berry and I cannot begin to tell you the great benefits we have seen. Read more about it at:

How on earth do they make the durian fruit not smell? Surely they can only slightly reduce the stink?
