From the distributor
We operate an Edible Landscape Nursery in SW Florida, and also assist Third World development workers with technical information. There is no book in our library that is used as much this one. We thought so much of it that when the autor died we obtained the entire remaining stock to make sure it remained on the market for years to come.
This 505 page book is an exceptionally exhaustive source of information on tropical and subtropical fruits. It is a well-illustrated and very readable, practical guide for those interested in growing tropical and subtropical fruits either for the home garden or commercially. The fruits are grouped by family. Covered under each fruit are: description, origin and distribution, varieties, cultivation, climate, uses, pests and diseases, propagation and nutritional information.
