Effective fruit production requires general knowledge of fruit husbandry in areas such as nutrition, propagation, pruning and training, effects of climate and crop protection, as well as specific cultivation techniques for each fruit. Fully revised and expanded to include organic fruit production, this new edition provides a thorough introduction to the cultivation of fruit found throughtout the temperate and subtropical regions of the world.

As a member of the working group (WG) on "Temperate Zone Fruit Trees in the Tropics and Subtropics" of the International Society for Horticulture, I was aware of the lack of readily available information needed in many warm-climate locations where temperate fruit crops are grown. The founder of this WG, Frank Dennis, Jr. , was motivated to encourage knowledge transfer by sharing knowledge with many developing countries. We shared his drive and in presenting this book we believe we are doing a service to all persons interested in temperate fruits, but especially to those in tropical and subtropical countries, many of which are developing countries interested in growing these crops and lacking the knowledge needed. In this book, we have collected information covering a variety of different aspects of growing temperate fruit crops in warm climates. As this is the first time such an evaluation of these species has been done, interesting and novel aspects of tree development and fruiting are presented, with stress on elements like dormancy and irrigation that are not of such basic concern in the natural of the temperate zones. We are living in a transition age; horticultural studies habitat are changing and expertise such as can be found in the array of participants in this book is probably not going to be easily found in the future. I hope that this book will broaden our understanding of the fruiting Temperate Zone tree in general and of its adaptation to warm climates, in particular.

Tropical and subtropical fruits are popular products, but are often highly perishable and need to be transported long distances for sale. The four volumes of Postharvest biology and technology of tropical fruits review essential aspects of postharvest biology, postharvest technologies, handling and processing technologies for both well-known and lesser-known fruits. Volume 1 contains chapters on general topics and issues, while Volumes 2, 3 and 4 contain chapters focused on individual fruits, organised alphabetically. Volume 1 provides an overview of key factors associated with the postharvest quality of tropical and subtropical fruits. Two introductory chapters cover the economic importance of these crops and their nutritional benefits. Chapters reviewing the postharvest biology of tropical and subtropical fruits and the impact of preharvest conditions, harvest circumstances and postharvest technologies on quality follow. Further authors review microbiological safety, the control of decay and quarantine pests and the role of biotechnology in the improvement of produce of this type. Two chapters on the processing of tropical and subtropical fruit complete the volume. With its distinguished editor and international team of contributors, Volume 1 of Postharvest biology and technology of tropical and subtropical fruits, along with the other volumes in the collection, will be an essential reference both for professionals involved in the postharvest handling and processing of tropical and subtropical fruits and for academics and researchers working in the area. Along with the other volumes in the collection, Volume 1 is an essential reference for professionals involved in the postharvest handling and processing of tropical and subtropical fruits and for academics and researchers working in the area Focuses on fundamental issues of fruit physiology, quality, safety and handling relevant to all those in the tropical and subtropical fruits supply chain Chapters include nutritional and health benefits, preharvest factors, food safety, and biotechnology and molecular biology

Fruits are botanically diverse, perishable, seasonal andpredominantly regional in production. They come in many varieties,shapes and size, colors, flavors and textures and are an importantpart of a healthy diet and the global economy. Besides vitamins,minerals, fibers and other nutrients, fruits contain phenoliccompounds that have pharmacological potential. Consumed as a partof a regular diet, these naturally occurring plant constituents arebelieved to provide a wide range of physiological benefits throughtheir antioxidant, anti-allergic, anti-carcinogenic, andanti-inflammatory properties. Handbook of Fruits and Fruit Processing distils thelatest developments and research efforts in this field that areaimed at improving production methods, post-harvest storage andprocessing, safety, quality and developing new processes andproducts. This revised and updated second edition expands andimproves upon the coverage of the original book. Some highlightsinclude chapters on the physiology and classification of fruits,horticultural biochemistry, microbiology and food safety (includingHACCP, safety and the regulation of fruits in the global market),sensory and flavor characteristics, nutrition, naturally presentbioactive phenolics, postharvest physiology, storage,transportation and packaging, processing and preservationtechnologies. Information on the major fruits includes tropical andsuper fruits, frozen fruits, canned fruit, jelly, jam andpreserves, fruit juices, dried fruits and wines. The 35 chaptersare organized into five parts: Part I: Fruit physiology, biochemistry, microbiology, nutritionand health Part II: Postharvest handling and preservation offruits Part III: Product manufacturing and packaging Part IV: Processing plant, waste management, safety andregulations Part V: Production, quality and processing aspects ofmajor fruits and fruit products Each chapter has been contributed by professionals from aroundthe globe representing academia, government institutions andindustry. The book is designed to be a valuable source andreference book for scientists, product developers, students and allprofessionals with an interest in this field.
