Florida is experiencing a surge of interest in growing fruit for the home. Dooryard orchards have sprung up across the state.Tree sales attract huge crowds. Fruit festivals draw thousands. Much of the enthusiasm can be traced to waves of immigration from Latin America and Asia where many of the best species described within these pages originated.
While several books have addressed the cultivation of subtropical fruit, most lack regional focus. This book has been designed from the outset as a reference for Florida homeowners and Florida growers. It provides detailed plant profile, replete with illustrations, distribution maps, climate requirements, cultivation, and crop management.
