This volume contains a classic article on growing apples, with information on varieties, pests and diseases, plating, harvesting, and the cultivation of other orchard fruits. Profusely illustrated and full of simple instructions and useful information, this volume will appeal to those occupied in the production of fruit, and would make for a great addition to horticultural collections. Contents include: “Adaptation of Varieties to Soil”, “Adaptation of Standard Varieties of Apples”, “Choice of Varieties”, “Description of Varieties of Apples”, “Apricots”, “Cherries”, “Peaches”, “Pears”, etc. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on growing fruit.
