I am longing for a world where dung is dung and horseshit is horseshit.
I have always thought I red it in a book of Henry Miller - The Colossus on Maroussi in 1969. So I took the paperbackedition from the shelf and browsed the now brownish pages for a marking of that phrase. I have not found it. Hopefully someone can help me find the right source.

When the seeds are ejected from the capsels you hear a sound like a pistolshot. Henry Wickham took 70 000 of them to Kew garden in London in 1876. They grow and where exported to south-east Asia and led to the fall of Barzilian rubber-industry in the 1930th.
Read more about it in Steven Alexanders book Santarém Riverboat Town. You can read more about his book in his blog http://bosque-santa.blogspot.com/ .

Almost the whole harvest of peaches this year. Many get surprised of the fact that the peaches can grow in the free at our latitude, but I can tell that it is completely free from problems.

Här några rader ur Wikipedia.
The Cashew (Anacardium occidentale; Anacardium curatellifolium) is a tree in the flowering plant family Anicardiaceae. The plant is native to northeastern Brazil, where it is called by its Portugese name Caju (the fruit) or Cajueiro (the tree). It is now widely grown in tropical climates for its cashew "nuts" and cashew apples.
What appears to be the fruit of the cashew tree is an oval or pear-shaped accesory fruit or false fruit that develops from the receptacle of the cashew flower. Called the cashew apple, better known in Central America as "marañón", it ripens into a yellow and/or red structure about 5–11 cm long.
