Publisher Comments:

Jean-Marie Lespinasse and Évelyne Leterme, fruit tree specialists based in France, explain the unique conditions and requirements of fifteen different types of trees--almond, apple, apricot, cherry, chestnut, fig, grape, hazelnut, kiwi, olive, peach, pear, plum, quince, and walnut. From understanding climatic limitations and tree morphology to selecting rootstock varieties and mastering fertilization technique, principles of training, and proper harvesting methods, this manual provides an in-depth study of fruit tree cultivation for landscape designers, arborists, horticulturalist, and serious gardeners alike. By respecting the natural characteristics and habits of the trees, you will learn sensitive, effective interventions to ensure strong, healthy fruit tree development. Technical details are elegantly and clearly illustrated in more than 300 full-color photographs and drawings, supplemented by a comprehensive glossary and resource list.

Book News Annotation:

The original publication was in French (2005: ditions du Rouergue) and was sponsored by the Conservatoir Vegetal Regional d'Aquitaine, a regional organization dedicated to the region's tree heritage and the preservation of traditional varieties. This English translation, modified for North America, brings the work to a wider audience. Tree-growers on any scale will benefit from the detailed information, attractively presented, with plenty of photos. Individual chapters are devoted to almonds, apples, apricots, cherries, chestnuts, figs, table grapes, hazelnuts, kiwis, olives, peaches, pears, plums, quince, and walnuts.
