Fruit and Nut Production

Brenda Olcott-Reid and William Reid

This book is designed for students, growers, researchers and extension workers who deal with perennial fruit and nut crops.  It emphasizes ecological and economical production methods and offers information about the use of fruit trees in home landscapes.
Sections of this book include basics of fruit and nut production, small fruit production, tree fruit production, tree nut production, minor and experimental fruit crops, and home fruit growing.

Each author has a Ph.D. and has done extensive research in the field as well as taught in the college classroom.  Their practical experience is exemplified by Brenda’s ownership and management of a retail fruit operation that grows blackberries, raspberries, strawberries, peaches, and apples. This book contains close to 600 pages of well researched and practical information.
