Product Description


Raspberries are produced on a worldwide scale but, with the first raspberries cultivated only about 450 years ago, they are still a relatively new fruit crop. As the potential health benefits of raspberries become more widely known, production and consumption are increasing steadily worldwide. 

Providing an international overview of the modern raspberry industry, Raspberries covers breeding and production in North America, Europe, Asia and the Middle East. It discusses all aspects of raspberry growing, including plant growth and development, cultivar description and selection, site selection and preparation (including soil and drainage), climate, pest control, irrigation, shipping, economics, harvesting and marketing of the final product. Much of this publication covers research-based information, including hundreds of references and nearly 80 full-color photos. Taking a global perspective, this book provides a comprehensive yet concise reference for all horticulture students, raspberry growers, producers and fruit industry personnel looking for the latest information on raspberry production.
