Hooray for Orchards!
By Bobbie Kalman
This book provides a nice 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 dies address pests and pest control, one of the shortcomings of this book is the description near the end of the book on beneficial insects and pesticide use. The author over simplified 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.
