A helpful book for any home gardener or casual fruit grower. The best part of this is the way that it is organized.
Favorite Feature: A pictographic problem quick guide at the very beginning of the book to help you diagnose your fruit's symptoms and easily find the solution in another section of the book. This is a much better set-up than having to guess the problem that is occurring and then look up that issue within the book, possibly to find out that it is not the issue you are having at all.
Plant Portraits sections: an easy way to find the information you need for the specific plants you grow; includes a brief description, temperature guide, soil, light and water needs, uses, pollination methods, pruning guides and where to go in the book to find solutions to problems in the other sections.
I was very happy that I was able to find all of the fruits that I grow were included in this book, especially the mulberry, which is often overlooked.
Family Problem Solving Guide: another pictographic problem guide to help you identify problems. You will be directed here from the Plant Portraits sections to help solve problems specific to that family of plant.
Organic Solutions to specific problems are also featured including shade structures, water retention systems and proper pruning techniques.
