Shelves: food, gardening
The author has very extensive research, much of it done in oriental countries, added by her own planting practice in the west. The book is a very useful reference (so I bought a copy, an exception to my habit of reading-but-not-owning).

The revised edition of this is even better than the original. Great info about the vegetables and how to grow them. Also includes a list of all the vegetables with their respective Chinese and Japanese names and a list of seed companies that sell Asian veggie seeds.
