Having grown up around orchards, I thought I knew a fair bit about the subject. This book blew me away. Fantastic information, written in an approachable, easy-to-digest style. If you want to grow fruit trees, do yourself a favor and get this book first. ( )

Solid information about the provenance, care, and harvesting of fruit from backyard trees. Includes information about all major types of fruit trees (apples, pears, plums, peaches &c). A handy way to get up to speed for people looking to finally take care of that life-giving tree under whose shade they have frolicked. A useful reference for people looking to plan a new orchard too.
