Product Description

Nearly everyone is familiar with citrus, bananas, pineapples, dates, figs, mangos, papayas, and avocados, but few people recognize the potential value of a multitude of lesser known fruit.  Many fruits are grown within limited geographical confines and are known only by the inhabitants of that area.  Slowly but surely many tropical and subtropical fruits are becoming known and finding their way into commercial markets.  Fruits that were only distributed by ethnic markets ten years ago are now distributed by major market chains.  These emerging fruits are pomegranate, carambola, calamondin, cherimoya, sugar apple and the spondias.  Other fruits with considerable potential but still relegated to limited ethnic and regional markets include marula, breadfruit, jackfruit, granadilla, perjibaye and mountain papaya.

The purpose of Fruits of Tropical and Subtropical Orgin is to enhance awareness of the value for lesser known fruits.  The limited amount of previously published information on the lesser known fruits was not readily available to research workers.  This book should be a valuable reference source in an area of increasing worldwide interest---the search for new and exotic foods.

Contents:  Origin & distribution, Cashew apple & nut, Marula, Spondias: the red mombin & related fruits, Biriba, Cherimoya, Sugar apple, Mangaba, Mountain papaya, Bacuri & Cupuassu, Breadfruit & jackfruit, Araza, Jaboticaba, Carambola & bilimbi, Pejibaye, Granadilla, Pomegranate, Calamansi/calamondin, Lucuma.
