Today I learned that pomology is the study of fruit and fruit-culture.  Not little fruit symphonies and art shows culture, but the process of culturing or growing fruit. definites it "the science that deals with fruits and fruit growing"

I have a backyard full of fruit trees.  I suppose I should study pomology to make them more productive :)

Why on earth someone thought dolphins needed to be trained for fighting I'm not sure....
