Welcome home!
By Jake Laub
In chiropractor Scott Donkin's opin-
ion, all recliners should be massage
chairs. "Imagine you're watching the
Super Bowl," says Donkin. "Your body
is just sitting there and your circulation
is diminishing. Now imagine you had a
chair that worked for you rather than
against you."
That's the promi se of massage
chairs. Massage promotes circulation,
which expedites healing, and massage
chairs allow you to enjoy unlimited
massages i n the comfort of your
home.
But j ust l ooki ng at the massage
chair market can get you knotted up.
At the high end are luxury chairs such
as Human Touch's Zero-Gravity mas-
sage chair, which retails for an esti-
mated $4,000. When the massage
begins, the chair reclines into a "zero-
gravity" position to reduce stress on
the spine and improve circulation while
the massage mechanism emulates the
techniques of human hands.
Notably at the top of its category,
the Zero-Gravity chair is a finalist in
the furniture category of the Interna-
tional Housewares Association's 2008
Housewares Design Awards, which
will be determined later this spring.
Two more luxury massage chairs are
Panasoni c's Swede-Atsu Wave,
$2,000, and the Real Pro Elite, $4,000,
which are the only massage chairs
endorsed by the American Chiroprac-
tic Association. The ACA chose the
chairs based on their high degree of
massage precision and adjustability.
Then there are massage pads, such
as the Shiatsu massage cushion with
heat by HoMedics, which can turn any
chair into a relaxing getaway for $100.
"Our philosophy is to take away the
leather, the legs and all the chair parts
of a massage chair and just use the
mechanism," says Barb Westfield,
chief marketing officer at HoMedics.
"That's what a massage chair is any-
way."
Once you decide your price range
and what functionality you want, the
only way to decide which massage
chair is right for you is to get comfort-
able and start comparing massages,
Donkin says.
It's hard work, but somebody has to
do it.
Your home is important, not only
because it's a major financial invest-
ment but also because it's the place
where your family gathers to share
wonderful moments together. That's
why we're pleased to bring you this
edition of HomeStyle, your source for
up-to-date home-improvement infor-
mation and creative decorating ideas

Enjoy Beautiful
By Denise DiFulco
For years, the conventional wisdom
on remodeling was that you'd never
go wrong putting in a new kitchen or
bathroom. While home prices were
skyrocketing throughout recent years,
many sellers found that they could
make back 100 percent or more on
those renovations.
Those days of such pleasant cer-
tainty are in the rear-view mirror now,
and in their place, defaults, dissatis-
faction and record lows flood the mar-
ket.
But remodeling is still a worthwhile
endeavor for a homeowner - you just
need to know where to put your
money.
1. Add a wood deck
Whi l e ki tchen and bathroom
improvements still hold their value
nicely upon resale, homeowners seek-
i ng an even better return on thei r
investment might do well to look out
their windows to the possibilities out-
side.
Nationally, the home-improvement
project reported to return the highest
percentage of its cost was a wood
deck addition (85.4 percent), accord-
ing to the most recent Remodeling
Magazine "Cost vs. Value Report,"
published in December by Hanley
Wood, LLC, Washi ngton D.C., i n
cooperation with the National Associ-
ation of Realtors.
Increasingly, remodeling projects
that boost a home's curb appeal are
among those that best recoup their
cost when it comes time to sell. "In
any market, but especially in a com-
petitive market that favors buyers, you
want to make a good first impression,"
says Stephani e Si nger, a spokes-
woman for the National Association of
Realtors. "How a home presents on
the outside might influence a buyers'
perception of what's going on inside."
In other words, you want to motivate
potential purchasers to step out of the
car instead of driving past to another
listed house.
2. Freshen up the bathroom
Give the bathroom a facelift in less
time than you think, says Nicole Sas-
saman, a Los Angeles-based designer
and developer who has designed and
sold more than 70 condominiums.
Porcelain coating sprayed over old tile
revives a dull bathroom. At the very
least, switch out cheap fixtures and
hang a fresh shower curtain and tow-
els.
Of course, when undertaki ng
remodeling projects of any scope,
your first consideration should be your
own comfort and happiness.
"Part of the return on investment is
the enjoyment you get out of using it,"
says JP Frenza of Brooklyn, N.Y., who
has lived in, rehabbed and resold two
homes in recent years. "I think there's
also an honesty in the renovations that
buyers pick up on immediately. Other-
wise, it looks a little stiff."
3. Repair, paint the walls
There's nothing worse than a bad
paint or drywall job, says Sassaman.
"It sets people off for the whole house.
People who go to look at a house
appreciate a fresh paint job. It feels

By Dave Waldon
An empty room - that would seem to
be the dream scenario for any interior
designer. That's how Kim Myles sees
her situation as she surveys her new
Los Angel es apartment, a barren
space awaiting the arrival of her hus-
band, their belongings and one of their
two cats from their former home in
New York.
But the dreams of the bubbly Myles
have gone through an adjustment in
the months since she won HGTV's
"Design Star," the annual design-com-
petition series that rewards the top
designer with the opportunity to host a
new program on the cable network.
So as she prepares for her primetime
debut, the former hairdresser who
used to redo her living room in Queens
every three months, sees her white
box as ... a white box.
"As far as design is concerned, I get
to work it out with real people now,"
says the oft-smiling Myles. "So I think
having a space that I don't paint that I
live in - that is absolutely simple and
pure - is going to serve as a real
pal ate cl eanser for me. Wi th thi s
apartment, I haven't done a thing to it,
and I don't know how much I'm going
to do with it. We've found something
that is really beautiful just on its own,
and I think I might be a purist in my
own house for a little while - until I get
my sea legs under me, at least."
There hasn't been a lot of time for
Myles to get used to her new reality
since America chose her over 10 other
candidates on the "Design Star" finale
last fall. Within days of her triumph,
she was in Los Angeles for the first
time to begin the development of her
own signature series, the creatively
titled "Myles of Style." And before
Myles knew it, the first episode was
being shot and an eager couple had
invited her into their abode to do not
simply what she willed but what all
three of them wanted. That's a key
component of the show for Myles, a
HGTV junkie who describes herself as
"one of those crazy peopl e who
watches all day long." She wants the
homeowners to have an active role in
whatever look results from her time in
their presence.
"It's going to be a real collaborative
venture and a partnership," Myles
says. "They're going to be with me
side-by-side, and they're going to
have a vested interest in
building the space that is
their space at the end of
the day." Not only does
Myles feel the interaction
equals great entertain-
ment value, she also sees
it as practical.
"We're deal i ng wi th
homeowners. These are
peopl e for whom thei r
homes are the bi ggest
fi nanci al commi tment
they've ever made or will
ever make."
Another poi nt Myl es
stresses when it comes
to her work: Most interior
desi gni ng i s not set i n
stone. "We all have those
moments when we throw
color on the wall, and you
stand back later and go,
'God, really? It doesn't
look the way I thought it
would.' But what do you do? You pick
another color, and you paint over it.
It's not the end of the world. Nothing's
permanent. It's not like we're tattoo-
ing."
Basic tenets of Myles' philosophy of
design are color, affordability and, per-
haps above all, comfort. "My home is
not a museum for other people to
visit," she says. "It's a place that says,
'Hey, welcome to my world. When you
come through these doors, this is
what I'm like, this is what I am.'
All Smiles
Kim Myles,
HGTV's new
Design Star

By Robert Sharoff
Back in the late 1990s, Amie Sikes'
future seemed clear. She graduated
from Texas A&M University and was
preparing to enter law school when
she suddenly started having doubts
about the wisdom of pursuing a career
that involved endless hours of shuf-
fling paper and staring at a computer
screen.
Like Willie Nelson, one of her idols,
Sikes loves the road, the endless hop-
scotching from town to town and the
opportunity to meet people and see
how life is lived across America.
A suggestion from her mother that
she take a booth at a local flea market
in order to earn money while she tried
to figure out an alternative career
proved to be a life-changing event.
"I went from wearing a suit to having
skinned knees, dirt under my finger-
nails and old leather gloves in my
purse - and I couldn't have been hap-
pier," Sikes said.
Before long, both her mother, Janie,
and her sister, Jolie, joined her, and
out of that collaboration emerged The
Junk Gypsy Co., a traveling retail road
show based in College Station, Texas.
The Junk Gypsi es' work i ncl udes
everything from flea markets in dusty
Texas towns to department store bou-
tiques at Macy's to gypsyville.com,
their rollicking Web site.
The merchandise is a mix of new
and old, and is flavored with Sikes'
love of everything from rock 'n' roll
and alternative country music to vin-
tage advertising signs and vending
machines.
Sikes recently explained her free-
wheeling approach to life and decorat-
ing, as well as the philosophy of being
a Junk Gypsy.
HOMESTYLE: Who or what i s a
Junk Gypsy?
AMIE SIKES: It's a lifestyle and also
an attitude. We have two quotes on
our Web site that kind of tell the story.
The first is "Well-behaved women
rarely make history," and the second is
"Resist much, obey little." We believe
in following your heart.
HS: How does that play out in deco-
rating terms?
AS: If you want to paint your bath-
room taco-shack pink, do it. Don't
worry about what the neighbors will
say or whether some big magazine
says you're not supposed to do that. If
taco-shack pink puts a smile on your
face, go for it.
HS: What’s your style?
AS: Eclectic. It's basically stuff
we love blended together. Maybe
you start off with a great 1970s
Willie Nelson concert poster in an
antique frame next to a lacquered
Oriental dresser from the 1940s.
We love rock 'n' roll stuff, West-
ern stuff, whimsical stuff like old
si gns and gumbal l machi nes.
We're drawn to certain colors - a
l ot of turquoi se, a l ot of red,
gold, black and chocolate brown
- in crazy quilt patterns. In the
beginning, we painted or embel-
lished almost everything. We
wore out a l ot of el ectri c
sanders. And we still do some
of that.
HS: Where do you mainly sell
today?
AS: The Web site, which we
designed ourselves. We also
do special projects and pro-
motions. Last summer, for example,
we di d a bi g thi ng wi th Macy's i n
Chicago where they had Junk Gypsy
bouti ques i n fi ve of thei r bi ggest
stores. That was very cool. We also
decorated country singer Miranda
Lam-
bert's tour bus. We got a phenomenal
amount of publicity from that. We also
do a big warehouse sale once or twice
a year called Junkapalooza. It's three
days, and we bring in bands - it's
always a great event.
Queens of the Road
The Junk Gypsies have their
own saucy blend of home décor

5. Replace the hardware
Handles and hinges on cabinetry
should match. Period.
"If I cheap out on the hardware, it
affects the selling price," Sassaman
says. This is a small detail often over-
looked by homeowners, but the conti-
nuity such minor hardware pieces
makes quite an impact.
6. Make minor kitchen reno-
vations
S i n c e
few people spend an entire
lifetime in the same home, it's wise
to avoid too much customization.
Kitchens, in particular, are where
homeowners can fall victim to trends
and themes that might limit future
interest from buyers and additional
profits from resale. "When we talk to
people about that, we encourage
them not to be too edgy i n thei r
selection of materials," says Alfano.
"If your countertop is purple and the
walls are green and your fixtures are a
strange finish, it's going to be hard to
appeal to a wide range of buyers." The
Cost vs. Value Report ranked minor
kitchen remodeling third in terms of
offering homeowners a return of its
cost, at 83 percent.
7. Buy a new house number
If the numbers on the outside of
your home are crooked
o r
unreadable, it will make buyers won-
der whether the rest of the house is as
poorly maintained.
Sassaman suggests splurging for
the better-quality numbers. "What
does that cost? Twenty dollars, as
opposed to the cheapies? That first
impression can make all the differ-
ence."
8. Replace the windows
New win-
dows are a
smart addi-
ti on to a
home, par-
ticularly if
t h e
h o m e ' s
c u r r e n t
e n e r g y
efficiency
is under-
g o i n g
changes
too. The
" C o s t
v s .
V a l u e
Report"
reported that
wood window replacement was
project that returned the fourth highest
percentage of its cost, at 81.2 percent,
and vi nyl wi ndow repl acement
returned the fifth highest, at 79.3 per-
cent.
Al fano says wi ndow technol ogy
between today and just 20 years ago
is "like night and day. You're not going
to get your money back in a year, but
you're going to get it back."
9. Change the flooring
Dirty tile or vinyl flooring is a turn-
off. Hardwood floors are a great alter-
native, especially if you can afford the
real thing. "It makes a house look
newer, lighter and brighter," Sassaman
says.
10. Create storage
People love their "stuff" - so add
storage wherever possible. Frenza
found that when selling his last Brook-
lyn apartment, buyers appreciated the
built-in storage he installed, since
space was at a premium.
"Every si ngl e person who went
through the space said, 'I can see my
stuff in there,'" he recalls. "Can I say it
returned the investment 100 percent?
I don't know, but I know we did really
well."

Lester Raines was so impressed
with the aquarium he visited in Myrtle
Beach, S.C., that he went home to
West Virginia and built one - in his liv-
ing room. The 20-foot long tank spans
an entire wall and holds more than
4,000 gallons of water.
"Everyone who sees it is flabber-
gasted," Raines says. "I've had a cou-
ple friends of mine who are teachers
and they've brought their first-, sec-
ond- and third-grade classes over to
look at it."
Raines' gigantic tank highlights a
trend in custom aquariums: Bigger is
better. People just can't seem to pass
up putti ng l i vi ng art i n thei r l i vi ng
rooms, says Ki m Patel , owner of
Aquariumsource, a Chicago-based
custom aquarium company.
"The trend is for a lot of folks who
are remodeling or building to have
these tanks be focal points in homes,"
she says. "They're designing their
homes around the tanks and filtration."
While fish tanks are beautiful, filtra-
tion is one of the major issues poten-
tial aquarium owners must consider
when building a custom tank. Raines'
filtration system takes over an entire
room.
The other concern is cost. Accord-
ing to Patel, moderately large tanks
( 125 gal l ons to 300 gal l ons) cost
between $1,300 and $1,500 with filtra-
tion.
But if you have the cash, another
type of trendy aquarium isn't for fish at
all, but for jellyfish.
"They're so exotic; the movement of
jellyfish is like living art," says Izzy
Capuano, owner of Infinity Aquarium
Design in Las Vegas. "Also, we play
with fiber optics and different light.
The jellies take on light, so we can get
very creative."
However, jellyfish must be kept in
special aquariums called kreisels to
keep the delicate creatures away from
the walls of the tank. The technology
to do this has only recently become
available on a residential scale and is
still very expensive. Kreisels start at
about $30,000, according to Capuano.
But if you have the resources and
the space, there's nothi ng l i ke an
aquarium to make a room sparkle.
"A painting, granted, is absolutely
gorgeous, but there's no motion with
it," Patel says. "If you have an aquari-
um it's an ever-changing picture."

I f you haven't
l i ved through a
bathroom-remod-
eling project lately,
you might be in for
a surprise the next
time you go shop-
ping for a toilet.
Sure, you expect
to spend hours pour-
i ng over ti l e sampl es,
but how many toilet choices
can there really be? Sounds like
a 20-mi nute errand: Wal k i nto a
remodeling store or plumbing show-
room, choose white or beige, and
glance at the water usage.
But today the process isn't nearly so
simple. "People are very sur-
prised when they haven't
bought a toilet in 20
years," says Jul i e
Brady, showroom
manager at Stan-
dard of New Eng-
land, Portsmouth,
N. H. "They say,
'Oh, I need a toilet,'
thinking there are going
to be two or three choic-
es." In reality, Brady shows
them countless toilets rang-
ing in price from $200 up to
$5,000.
There are high-tech toilets
with wireless remotes and a
di zzyi ng array of functi ons.
Legions of water-saving models com-
pete to soothe your green conscious.
Comfort-height models promise to
lessen strain on knees while one-piece
toilets achieve a sleek look that's easi-
er to clean. Then there are fancy, elec-
tronic seats that turn your current toi-
let into a bidet, and showy, custom
toilets best described as "bathroom
bling."
Maybe you'd bet-
ter slot a little
more time into
your pl anner
to choose the
ri ght one. I f
you're looking
for luxury, the
Neorest 600 by
TOTO USA,
Morrow, Ga.,
offers beauty
and brains. The
l i d automati cal l y opens when you
approach, and the toilet automatically
flushes and closes the lid when you're
done. There's also a wireless remote,
built-in deodorizer and a warm-water
spray to clean private parts. And since
it's a tankless toilet, the Neorest offers
a distinctive, modern look.
But with a price tag of more than
$5,000, who's buying? TOTO says A-
list Hollywood stars such as
Will Smith, Brad Pitt and
Jennifer Lopez enjoy their
Neorests. Pl us, Brady
believes there's a wider
market for luxury toilets.
"Peopl e wi th hi gh-end
homes have hi gh-end
everything else, so they
want a high-end toilet,"
she says.

Terrariums are mak-
ing a comeback. And
it's no wonder,
si nce they
present a fun
winter alter-
nati ve for
avid garden-
ers or a sim-
pl e way to
grow beautiful
housepl ant s
for the garden-
ing challenged.
Ter r ar i ums
that are trul y
sealed mimic in
miniature form
the same
hydr ol ogi cal
system that
exi sts on
earth. "Water
evaporates, i t
rai ns and water
finds its way back," he says. So the
plants require little to no water.
To make it work, select a clear plas-
ti c or gl ass contai ner that can be
tasteful l y cl osed. If l arge enough,
brandy snifters make good terrariums.
Candy jars, jugs, bottles and used fish
tanks are other common possibilities.
Use a peat-like organic growing medi-
um; most garden centers sell prepack-
aged mixes. Don't worry about adding
fertilizer; you don't want the plants to
grow so rapidly that they outgrow their
container.
Select plants that can survive in
low-light conditions. Those from
pepperomia and pilea families do
well, such as miniature peperomia,
emerald ripple or artillery
plant. Other good choices
include African violets,
baby tears and bego-
ni as. Mostl y,
sel ect pl ants
you l i ke wi th
the most suit-
abl e fol i age.
The size of the
plant's leaves
shoul d be
c o mp a t i b l e
with the size of
the terrari um;
for small terrar-
iums, choose
plants with tiny
leaves.
For the most attractive
look, vary the color, size and texture of
plants in the container. And plant them
in tiers, with one larger, more dominant
plant, another that serves as a filler,
then ground cover for the bottom tier.
The plants also should have similar
growing-condition requirements in
terms of light and water.

MEET A TRIOOF DISTINGUISHED
NEW GARDEN GUESTS
Three new cultivars available in garden
centers and nurseries this spring bear the
seal of approval from All-America Selec-
tions, a group that promotes promising
new garden seed varieties.
AAS winners have been tested in a net-
work of trial gardens throughout North
America are grown and tested by skilled,
impartial judges. Winners have proven
themselves worthy over a broad range of
growing conditions. AAS winners have
been introduced every year since 1933.
'Asti White' Osteospermum
Li ke al l Afri can dai si es, thi s tough,
drought-tolerant annual thrives in full sun.
But 'Asti Whi te' i s the fi rst whi te
Osteospermum propagated from seed. Its
large white daisy blooms with blue centers
will stay open under cloudy skies, unlike
other daisy flowers originating in South
Africa, which close. Gardeners can choose
to grow 'Asti White' from seed or to pur-
chase plants. Place plants in the spring or
fall garden weeks earlier than tender annu-
als, since 'Asti White' plants will recover
from a slight frost. The daisy adapts well to
containers.
Genus species: Osteospermum ecklonis
Common names: African Daisy, Blue-
eyed Daisy, Cape Daisy
Claim to fame: First white osteosper-
mum propagated from seed. Freedom of
bloom and uniform size plants
Colors: White with blue center
Plant height: 17-20 inches
Plant width: 17-20 inches
'Skippy XL Plum-Gold' viola
This charming annual has small flowers,
but the plant produces such a remarkable
profusion of blooms from spring to the
heat of summer that no gardener is likely
to complain. In the South, where 'Skippy
XL Plum-Gold' may grow as a perennial, a
fall planting should provide little golden
faces throughout the winter. The flowers
are uniquely designed with plum shades
surrounding the golden centers, which
contain radiating black lines affectionately
called whiskers. The petite plants are great
for combination planters.
Genus species: Viola cornuta
Common name: Viola
Claim to fame: Color combinations, vig-
orous and floriferous, flower size
Colors: Plum shades with golden center
Plant height: 6 inches
Plant width: 8 inches
'Hansel' miniature eggplant 'Hansel'
produces finger-sized clusters of fruit. The
little dynamo makes up for its smaller size
in prodigious production. The strong plant,
reaching less than 3 feet, produces clus-
ters of three to six fruit. They mature early,
about 55 days from transplanting into
warm soil, about 10 days earlier than simi-
lar varieties. If the 3-inch fruit clusters are
left on the plant, they grow in size but
remain tender and nonbitter, unlike other
eggplant. 'Hansel' performs well in con-
tainers, providing high yields of shiny pur-
ple eggplants. 'Hansel' is available as seed
and young bedding plants.
Genus species: Solanum melongena
Common names: Eggplant, Aubergine
Fruit size: From 2 to 10 inches in length
Plant height: 36 inches
Plant width: 30 inches
Unique qualities: Miniature plant. Clus-
ters of tender sweet fruit with few seeds.
Early length of time from transplanting to
harvest (55 days).

Super-Duper
Superfoods
By Jessica Royer Ocken
Whether they're chock full of vita-
mins, low in calories, high in fiber, or
rich in phytonutrients and antioxi-
dants, some foods stand out above
the other garden-variety fruits and
vegetables.
Doctors say these "superfoods"
should command a leading role in our
diet. And, fortunately, they're easy to
come by and can even be grown in a
home garden.
"Growing your own produce entices
people to eat more of it," says Ann G.
Kulze, M.D., a nutrition and wellness
expert. "People - especially kids - are
more likely to try a vegetable if they've
grown it. And it also tastes better
because it's fresher."
Already envisioning your backyard -
or back patio - as home to a super
garden? Use these ti ps to pl ant
health-boosting winners, then guide
the harvest to all the right spots in
your diet.
Sweet Potatoes
Why they're super: Unl i ke thei r
white-fleshed counterparts, sweet
potatoes are not just starchy carbs.
Their orange-yellow hue indicates a
high dose of beta-carotene and vita-
mins A and C. Plenty of fiber ensures
they're filling and slowly digested. A
baked sweet potato packs about 250
percent of the recommended daily
value of vitamin A.
Growing tips: Warmer climates are
best for sweet potatoes, as they need
about 100 frost-free days before har-
vest. I f you have l i mi ted space,
choose a bush-variety plant, rather
than the trailing-vine variety. Start your
plants by allowing sweet potatoes to
sprout in a jar of water placed in a
sunny location, suggests the Texas
A&M University Extension. Slips (sec-
tions of vine) should then be trans-
ferred to wide, raised ridges and
planted 12 to 18 inches apart. By
late summer you can dig into the side
of the ridge to collect the first plump
roots.
How to eat: Cooking makes sweet
potatoes even healthier, as softening
their structure releases the healthful
carotenoids locked within the plant's
fiber, explains Kulze. So, bake them,
roast them with olive oil and cinnamon
or cumin, or puree them for soups or
delicious desserts.
Blueberries
Why they're super: In addition to
bountiful vitamin C and fiber, the blue-
berry's ri ch hue i s a hi nt that i t's
packed wi th phytonutri ents and
antioxidants - compounds that reduce
inflammation and help the body fight
disease. "I consider blueberries the
healthiest fruit you can eat," says
Kulze.
Growing tips: According to the Uni-
v er s i t y
of Mi n-
nesota Exten-
si on, they do
best i n a sunny
spot with slightly acidic soil that drains
well. Bushes should be planted in late
spring and spaced 3 to 4 feet apart.
Also, with their glossy green leaves,
abundant springtime white blossoms,
and rich red fall foliage - in addition to
their fruit - blueberry bushes are as
suitable for beautifying the landscape
as they are for providing nourishment
from the garden.
How to eat: A cup of blueberries has
just 80 calories, so why not sprinkle
them everywhere? Try them as a top-
per for cereal or oatmeal, salads or
yogurt, or use them as a base in a pie
or smoothie. "Frozen [are] as good as
fresh," says Kulze. "So if you grow
your own blueberries, you can stock-
pile and eat them all year."

Painting
Fill your garden with English pots and Grecian columns, if you choose. We
think every yard needs to be fertilized with fun. Here are a few of our favorite
tacky treats.
Pink flamingos
These aluminum-and-plastic
fantasies aren’t just pop icons,
they’ve become fundraising
favori tes. Hi gh school and
church groups have taken to
“flocking” members’ yards –
planting tens, or hundreds, of
the colorful fowl in the dead of
ni ght, and then chargi ng a
donation the next day for their
removal.
Garden gnomes
Inspired by fabled woodland
creatures, the garden gnome
is said to add good luck to any
yard it graces. Some may say
the fascination with these hob-
bi t-si zed fi gures has over-
stayed its welcome, but to
fans like pro gardener Rebec-
ca Kolls, “gnomes never get
old.” Upscale retailer Smith &
Hawken has even added them
to their mix

Broccoli
Why it's super: Broccoli is noted for
its "anti-cancer prowess," says Kulze.
It contains lots of folic acid and vita-
min C and sulforaphanes, which pro-
vide potent protection from breast and
prostate cancers.
Growing tips: Broccoli is a cool-sea-
son vegetable, so plan for a spring
and fall harvest once your plants get
going. It's best to begin with trans-
pl ants, rather than seeds, whi ch
should be planted in early spring and
spaced 2 to 3 feet apart so that
mature plants, which can be 2.5 feet
tall, are at least 1 foot apart on all
sides, says the University of Illinois
Extension.
How to eat: Many of the goodies
found in broccoli are heat-sensitive, so
your best bet is to eat it raw - a few
florets on your salad, as a vehicle for
hummus or other dips, or shredded
into a slaw. If you do cook it, steam it
lightly without immersing it in water to
prevent the water-soluble vitamins
from leaching out. Lightly cooked
broccoli can top a pizza, serve as a
side dish or swim in a soup.
Apples
Why they're super: Apples are full of
fiber - the soluble kind helps lower
cholesterol and stabilize blood sugar,
explains Kulze, while insoluble fiber
slows digestion to help you feel full.
"There are 60 calories in a medium
apple, and if you chop it and put it on
a plate, that's a lot of food," she says.
An apple's skin contains querticin, a
potent anti-inflammatory flavonoid
linked to heart health.
Growing tips: OK, not everyone has
the space for an orchard, but dwarf
apple trees (up to 10 feet tall) can
grow nicely in a backyard, bear fruit
sooner than full-sized trees, and are
easily integrated into landscaping via
trellises or espaliers - or even a con-
tainer, notes the Ohio State University
Extension. Full sun is best for growing
apples, as is sandy, well-drained soil
and circulating air. Plant young trees in
early spring and be prepared to prune
and train them as they grow.
How to eat: Apples are another food
best eaten raw, so cut one up as a
snack, add chunks to salads or shred
some over your oatmeal . When
choosing an apple, go for small- to
medium-sized fruits rather than the
hugest one in the bin. "The smaller the
fruit or vegetable, the better for you
because it's the skin that has the
nutritional value - or just below it,"
says Kulze. You want a high skin-to-
flesh ratio when choosing fruits like
apples, blueberries and tomatoes.
Spinach
Why i t's super: Vi tami ns A, B9
(folate), C and K are found in spinach,
along with iron, calcium, and zinc.
Antioxidants also abound, including
lutein, which is good for the eyes.
"Dark, leafy greens in general, and
parti cul arl y spi nach, are nutri ent
goliaths," says Kulze. "Spinach con-
tains more nutrients per unit calorie
than any other food. One hundred
calories of spinach is probably a mas-
sive bag."
Growing tips: Start sowing spinach
as soon as spring arrives, and contin-
ue to sprinkle seeds for several weeks
to ensure your harvest conti nues
through summer, suggests the Univer-
sity of Illinois Extension. Re-seed at
the end of summer to continue pro-
ducing spinach through the fall. Fer-
tile, well-drained soil and plenty of
moisture keeps spinach plants happy.
Begin harvesting as soon as plants
form a rosette of five or six leaves.
How to eat: Kulze recommends eat-
ing spinach daily, so fortunately you
have a lot of options. Some of the
nutrients in spinach are easier for the
body to access after a little cooking,
while others are at maximum potency
raw, so feel free to enj oy a baby
spinach salad but also try steaming
some with olive oil and lemon for a
tasty side dish. Spinach is great in
soups or as a topping on veggie pizza,
too.
Tomatoes
Why they're super: Tomatoes are
packed with vitamins B and C, beta
carotene and potassium, as well as
fiber and lycopene, a cancer-fighting
phytochemical that gives them their
red color.
Growing tips: Begin with tomato
plants 8 to 10 inches tall, with dark-
green stocky stems, recommends the
University of Missouri Extension. The
quality of the plant determines the
quality of the tomatoes you'll grow,
and you can choose from an assort-
ment of colors, shapes and heirloom
varieties. Tomatoes grow best in full
sun and like a lot of water, so place
them - in the ground or in a container -
in an easy-to-water location and at
least 2 feet apart. Staking or caging
your plants improves tomato quality
and makes them easier to reach for
harvest.
How to eat: Tomatoes benefit from
cooking to help release their nutrients,
and they are best enjoyed with a little
fat to help with absorption of the fat-
soluble vitamins. So, cook them with a
touch of olive oil or choose a salad
dressing that does not say "fat free" -
just use it in moderation. Remember
that smaller tomatoes have a higher
skin-to-flesh ratio, so use grape or
cherry tomatoes as a fi nger food,
salad ingredient or pasta topper.
Whichever you decide to plant,no
supplement or vitamin pill can touch
these superfoods. "There's no better
way to get nutri ents than i n thei r
native form," says Kulze. "There's a
tremendous amount of synergy among
the nutrients in one food."

Now Expanded to Better Serve You
With Your Landscape Projects
By Dana Carman
Apples that taste like grapes, toma-
toes covered in wrinkles, plums mixed
with apricots, yellow raspberries -
these are just some of the homegrown
and imported tropical fruits and veg-
etables that populate your local mar-
kets. While there'll always be a place
in our hearts and refrigerators for reg-
ular ol' fruits and veggies, you've
probably noticed an increase in spe-
cialty items stocking your produce
aisles, quickly becoming the produce
du jour.
Produce has always come in many
varieties, shapes, sizes and colors, but
all the rage these days are those you
can't usually find in the states: those
that have been created through
hybridization and those that have sim-
ply risen the ranks in popularity. The
Honeycrisp apple is one such
example of the latter. Sweet
and juicy, the Honeycrisp "has
replaced the Gala as the early
apple of choice," says James
Parker, faci l i ty team l eader for
Whole Foods' national produce pur-
chasing office.
Why is the Honeycrisp so popular?
"It's very crisp, very moist," Parker
says. "It has a very distinctive flavor.
People are very much responding to
it." Red Delicious apples, once the
darling of the apple core, are barely
being grown anymore. The Red Deli-
cious looked great but didn't pack the
flavor, and consumers are looking for
flavor.
But flavor isn't only the driver behind
buying decisions, it's also a motivating
factor in the creation of new produce.
Hence,
the hybrid. The Honeycrisp apple is a
hybrid - the result of cross-pollinating
two apple varieties. Another popular
hybrid is the Uglyripe tomato, which is
named for i ts homegrown-l ooki ng
appearance and is popular for that, as
well as its flavor. The Muscato grape is
a cross between the Muscat grape
(which is a wine grape) and the green
seed-
less Thomp-
son grape, creating a
blend of the taste of a
wi ne grape wi th the
characteristics of a seedless grape.
Accordi ng to Robert Schuel l er,
director of public relations for special-
ty produce distributor Melissa's, com-
bining varieties, like in the case of the
Muscato grape, "rolls all the marketing
benefits up into these fruits." In addi-
tion to creating more-flavorful prod-
ucts, hybridization yields produce that

gether, such as the Labradoodle of
produce - the pluot. The pluot is 75
percent plum and 25 percent apricot.
It was conceived by taking its mother,
the plumcot - a 50-50 blend of plum
and apricot - and crossing it with a
pl um. Its si ster, the apri um i s the
opposite of the pluot - 75 percent
apricot and 25 percent plum - and is
conceived through the plumcot as
well.
Richard Leibowitz, owner of special-
ty produce broker Culinary Specialty
Produce, is a big fan of the pluot.

he says. Containing the best charac-
teristics of its parents, hybrids create
stronger flavor and practically sell
themselves, Leibowitz says.
Broccolini is another such hybrid.
A cross between Chinese kale
and broccol i , broccol i ni i s
described as elegant and sweet
wi th a peppery edge. The
Grapple, yet another hybrid, is
an apple infused with grape
flavor. "It looks like an apple,
tastes like a grape" goes its
sl ogan, and i t's marketed
toward parents and kids look-
ing for a sweet alternative to
unhealthy snacks. It's a market-
ing dream.
Advancements in produce creation
excite Parker, who is glad to see flavor
now being delivered with newer prod-
ucts. For years, the goal was to create
produce that traveled well and lasted
longer, but now those same products
are being cross-pollinated to infuse
flavor. "I call it the good-food revo-
lution," Parker says. "It's the
next competitive frontier -
let's deliver that shelf-sta-
ble product and let's deliv-
er fl avor at the same
time."
Flavor isn't
al l man-
made i n
the genre
o f
funky fruits. Imported, exotic fruits are
the taste of the town. Leibowitz's No.
1 pick for the hot new fruit of '08 is the
mangosteen, a tropi cal frui t that
"melts in your mouth," he says. Grown
in Southeast Asia
and onl y
r e c e n t l y
avai l abl e i n
the United
St at es,
Mangosteen has already gained a rep-
utation as a "superfruit" for its antioxi-
dant properties.
Fruits tagged as "super" and touted
for their healing properties tend to
skyrocket in popularity, such as Acai
and goji berries, which got an extra
boost from Oprah. Wi th a greater
emphasis on eating local, possessing
possi bl e heal th benefi ts provi des
ample justification for requesting pro-
duce that isn't available locally or even
domestically.
According to Schueller, people want
the new and different after trying them
i n other countri es. "They cal l and
request i t," he says. The most
requested unavailable fruit has been
the mangosteen, which Schueller
says should be available in 2008 along
with other tropical-fruit phenome-
nons, like dragonfruit and rambu-
tans.
Whether it's a new spin on an old
lettuce or a fantastic cross between a
lime and a kumquat (otherwise known
as a limequat), shiny, fancy varieties
of fruits and vegetables designed to
tempt with taste and improve on their
predecessors will continue taking up
stock in the produce aisles. Grapple
anyone?

Don’t let its hairy appearance fool you – Rambutan’s juicy-sweet texture and rosy
flavor pay homage to the delicate taste of strawberries and Muscat grapes.
