Hooray for Orchards!

By Bobbie Kalman

This book provides an excellent overview of orchards and fruit production of many types. It begins with a description of various types of fruit and which of those fruits are produced in orchards. Images depict modern dwarf varieties of apples, grafting, flowering and pollination, pruning, spraying, harvesting, and processing. While the book addresses pests and pest control, one of the areas for improvement of this book is the description near the end of the book on beneficial insects and pesticide use. The author oversimplified a very complex issue. The book concludes with a short glossary and recipe for apple crisp. This book is a well-written and illustrated source of information.
