Seems like a comprehensive study of growing fruit of all kinds, berries, tree fruit, etc., great pictures of different varieties and methods on choosing what would work best in your personal situation. I think I would like to own this book. Would be used a great deal at our house for reference.

This is a fantastic, and very comprehensive guide to growing fruit. For each type of fruit there is a section (ex.tree fruits) and in each area specific fruits are all discussed. From apples to kiwi fruits

Topics covered for each fruit :
Choosing a tree or plant
Choosing a variety
Choosing a pollination group
Growing said fruit
When to plant
Where to plant
Container growing
Routine care
Harvesting
Pruning
What can go wrong

There are several other areas that are covered for the different plants I will not list here. Photos are detailed and focused on what is discussed, not the gardener.
All in all this was a really helpful book this spring, and I think I will have to get my own copy. Check it out if you are interested in growing fruit, even if you only have a small space.
