Temperate fruits include stone/drupe fruits (such as peach), pome fruits (such as apple) and berries (such as strawberries). Like other crops, cultivation of these fruits faces a number of challenges. These include the need to optimize yields, sensory and nutritional quality; the dynamic threats from biotic and abiotic stresses in a changing climate; and the need for more efficient use of resources to minimise environmental impact. The two volumes of Achieving sustainable cultivation of temperate zone tree fruits and berries summarise the wealth of research addressing these challenges.
The second volume in this collection reviews advances in breeding and cultivation of particular fruits. Part 1 discusses development affecting key stone fruits (peach, cherry, plum and apricot) and pome fruits (pear and apple). Part 2 reviews optimising the breeding and cultivation of berry fruits (strawberry, raspberry, blackberry and blueberry).
With its distinguished editor and international range of expert authors, this collection will be a standard reference for horticultural scientists, government and other research centres and companies involved in cultivation of the range of temperate fruits.
