Close to three quarters of U.S. households buy orange juice. Its popularity crosses class, cultural, racial, and regional divides. Why do so many of us drink orange juice? How did it turn from a luxury into a staple in just a few years? More important, how is it that we don’t know the real reasons behind OJ’s popularity or understand the processes by which the juice is produced?
Join host Glen Andresen as he talks vegetables, including varieties, seeding, starting, and transplanting. And guest Jim Gilbert talks about his favorite fruit varietes. As always, listener questions welcomed. Plus a new Garden Stumper quiz!
