Even in this economy, doesn't it occur to Mr. Masumoto that someone who can't afford the more expensive peach will buy the cheaper one & eat the whole thing even if it's not as good?

If you grow a tree from a peach pit planted from one that was eaten, will it produce the same peach? or must they all be grafted?

Great segment! Thank you Mr.Masumoto! Hope his book winds up on shelves and in films with other heroes like Michael Pollan, Joel Salatin and Will Allen. Wish Leonard would have all 3 and more on some day.
