I believe this is the guy who came to Escondido last year for a talk on carambola, lychee and longan. Pretty informative.

My club president and treasurer just stopped by my house to collect some of my recently harvested Goldfinger bananas before heading south to this meeting.  Dr Crane has spoken to our group several times --- very informative.  I am stuck at home and hope to attend in the near future.  Our club --- Treasure Coast Rare Fruit club.  Adam's favorite club.  ;D
