Product Description

Tropical and Subtropical Fruits is the third volume in a series on tropical and sutropical fruits.  The editors collaborated with 24 scientists in preparation of this current volume, which contains 14 chapters covering 23 fruits.  Major processed fruits covered are mango and pineapple.  Emerging fruit crops that are predicted to become major crops include papaya, guava, kiwi, longan and rambutan.  Most of the fruits covered in this book are grown in the tropical and subtropical regions of Southeast Asia, from India to Australia and New Zealand.  There are two chapters on fruits from Brazil, and of course, pineapples are found in Hawaii.  Usually, the tropical regions encompass most of the underdeveloped and lesser developed countries.  Within the last ten to twenty years many of the lesser developed countries have made great strides in economic development.  Part of the economic success in these countries can be attributed to the contribution of modern industrialized agriculture.
