  4. Hi Catherine,

    I am Patrick from Taiwan, and I am running a website, VegTomato, http://www.vegtomato.org/, to advocate vegansim, which is a non-profit website, with some friends. Just found your great blog with so many tasty recipes and articles. I am wondering if I can have your permission to translate some of the recipes and articles into Chinese and post in my website to inspire Chinese go veganism. I will link back and credit it you.

    1. Sorry to get back to you so late; but yes, of course you can translate, use and post the content. =) Just do me a favor and abstain from posting the entirety of the fruits articles (small portions are a-okay). With any luck I'll be compiling it all into a book and I don't want to get into any copyright quibbles down the line.

      Good luck with your blog! Really excited to hear veganism's extending on out to China!

  6. My new hobby is to plant trees... And guess where I got the list of fruit bearing trees from ;)
    I have compiled a list of 44 fruit bearing trees from your blog. Thank you very much. I will let you know when I materialize on the whole list.

    PS: I would have never heard of the Budha's Hand fruit if not for your blog. Cheers!

  16. Hi Catherine,
    I came across the wonderful books authored by you. Some of my friends from a rare fruits group wanted the first version of the book. Could you please upload it on a free website. Also, another friend writes book reviews online for plant books and would be glad to do a review for your books if you are ok with it.
    Thanks,
    Manish

    1. Hm, my comment didn't seem to appear from earlier. I just added an option to download Vol 1 on the Scribd link, but it's also below:

      https://www.dropbox.com/s/tiyclkzfihqll6m/fruitsofindiavol1ver2%5Bsmallpdf.com%5D.pdf?dl=0

      Hope it works, and I welcome any book reviews. Thanks for the kind words!

      Thanks.

  19. Hi,
    Mrs. Reddy
    Since you are vegan and talk about food and great recipes, i think you should go for HYDROPONIC FARMING. As you live in south india, get access to more knowledge about it from PUNE, MAHARASHTRA in person. You can get some info on your own through searching about HYDROPONIC farming and for more help you can access this site "http://natures-best.in/".
    You can have your own farming without need of soil, maybe small business.
    Apart from that you may also like this link "http://englishwifeindianlife.com/", blogger is a british girl married to indian man. She also talk about her experience in india. May be you'll like it.

  20. Hi Catherine Reddy I will have do letter in a couple of times because it will not take it all. If you do not get it please send me you email my email in foodpediapjh@gmail.com Thank You Paul

    Dear Editor, Author, or persons authorized to give copyright permission.

    I am writing to you to get the permission to use your articles in my book The Foodpedia Fresh Fruits and Vegetables books series and other books will follow, on the history of other items in the food world. That will help the people of the world to eat and stay Healthier.

    I care and I hope you care about passing on to the new generation to stay Healthier.

    (REMEMBER SHARING IS CARING ! )

    I am writing these books to “give back” my knowledge to the next generation of people, all over this world. I am writing these books to educate the people about the advantages of eating “Fresh Fruits” and “Fresh Vegetables” and how they can help themselves to have a healthier body, and the foods that are not good for a healthy body.

    I got your name from the website. On the Fruit you wrote about. I have your name on the information that I used, so that you will get all the credit on it. I do not want the credit for your works. You’re the one that did all the research on the food items. I have to rely on you for all this knowledge and your researchers.

    I praise you for this, that is why I want you to get all the credit you put in to these articles.
    I have to rely on your help to teach and training our next generation to live healthier. Then living on all this junk food and all the chemical’s they put into the foods we eat today.
    That is why we are the product of this generation of obesity etc. We have to help our new generation to eat and stay healthier so they can have a better life, then being sick and overweight all the time.
    The world is changing and we have to change with it NOW for our kid’s sake.

    This is the 21st Century NOW, and we have to do something about it NOW!
    I am on a movement (mission) of caring and share to help, not to make the same mistake this generation and our pass generations has made, to help them live healthier lives better then we did.

    But I need your help to get this mission (movement) going. I need your permission to let this happen, to use your research in food, to train and educate the people of the world to eat healthier.

    Remember the people will go to your website for more updates. Because you are always updating it, that I cannot do.
    Can you please e-mail the permission letter to authorize me to use your articles in my books (The History of Fresh Fruits. { Foodpedia The History of Fresh Fruit }) I have about 130 chapters of some of the fresh fruit used around the world, with over 5,000 color pictures, and about 5,000 pages).
    Can you please email {foodpediapjh@gmail.com } with your permission to use your articles so we can help the this and the next generation to live and be healthier.

    Thank You Chef Paul J. Hintersteiner

  23. Hi, my father has a small papaya farm new Kadiri in Andhra Pradesh. During my visit to his farm this weekend, I noticed that the papaya fruit is developing white patches all over. I'm very concerned about this and needed some advice on how he can cure this.

    Any assistance in routing me to someone who can help will be much appreciated!!

    Thanks,
