Inside David Mas Masumoto’s orchard

Peach paranoia: Anxiety, fatigue, obsession. These are some of the feelings experienced by peach grower extraordinare David Mas Masumoto (and author of such books as Epitath for a Peach). He is plagued by questions: Did it rain too much?  Too little? Did the April heat wave damage the trees? Farming is full of risk and worry, but “without the bitter and sour you can’t taste the sweet and savory.”  (Los Angeles Times)
