Tropical fruits, by H Y Nakasone and R E Paull, aims (and succeeds!) at providing a basic understanding of all aspects of tropical fruit production and usage. The book begins by discussing tropical environmental conditions, general cultivation techniques and postharvest handling. Then the fun begins and the reader is treated to an enlightening and luscious journey through the botany, ecology, general characteristics, cultivar development, cultural practices, harvest and postharvest handling, and use of the following fruits: avocado; banana; carambola; guava; litchi, longan and rambutan; mango; papaya; passion-fruit; and pineapple. For desert, the last two chapters are devoted to lesser known Asian and American fruits. This book is required reading for anyone interested in tropical fruit production.
