Overview

Midwest Home Fruit Production Guide

We've all heard that "eating an apple a day keeps the doctor away." Do you know that blackberries, blueberries, raspberries and strawberries also have anti-cancer properties? With high food prices, it makes more sense than ever to grow your own fruit. Many fruit crops, such as apples, blackberries, raspberries and strawberries can be successfully grown in the home gardens. Apple trees, peaches, blackberries, blueberries, grapevines, raspberries and hardy kiwi can be easily incorporated into the "edible home landscape." This newly revised bulletin lists the recommended cultivars, demonstrates proper planting techniques and maintenance practices of the common and uncommon fruit crops in the Midwest and beyond. There are 269 color photos/illustrations to show gardeners how to grow those fruit plants and how to identify and manage their fruit pests and diseases. There is also a chapter on uncommon fruits, such as pawpaw and mulberry. This bulletin is an excellent reference for anyone with an interest in home fruit production. It is especially useful for home gardeners, Master Gardeners, garden centers employees, landscapers, garden designers, Extension professionals, and school teachers.
