ARCHITECT John Fisher has always loved actors. In fact, he married one and moved his family to Los Angeles in 1975 so his wife, the late Bonnie Johns, could pursue her craft. "When we got here," Fisher recalls, "the theater scene was mostly just the Mark Taper and all these non-Equity houses that were ad hoc transformations of some other kind of space.

I still remember the first time I tasted the legendary fruit the Dekopon. Think of a huge mandarin, easy to peel and seedless, with firm flesh that melts in the mouth, an intense sweetness balanced by refreshing acidity, and a complex, lingering mandarin orange aroma. I've tasted more than 1,000 varieties of citrus, and to me the Dekopon is the most delicious. So delicious, in fact, that I've pursued it for more than a dozen years, despite astonishing secrecy and intrigue. But now, finally, the Dekopon is beginning to appear in California stores, and the full story can be told.
