Fruit Cultivars for Home Plantings
Metadata[+] Show full item record
Success in growing fruits in home plantings largely depends on the type or cultivar selected. Midwestern growing conditions -- cold winters; frosty or rainy springs; hot, dry summers --make it difficult to grow some of the well-known fruits. Every gardener should be realistic and discriminating about what fruits to plant. Many problems with winter injury, diseases and insects can be avoided by choosing a fruit cultivar that is well adapted to your site conditions. This publication provides information on a variety of fruit cultivars.
