100 Harvests: A History of Fruitgrowing in Hawke's Bay
By Rose Mannering

Contains numerous photos throughout.

This enjoyable book, full of fascinating insights into the times, people and personalities of the last 100 years of the Hawke's Bay fruit industry, is in some ways a miniature history of New Zealand's development. The interface between Maori land owners and new settlers from Europe is covered, as are all stages of the development of the fruit industry in Hawke's Bay, and in many respects 100 Harvests: A History of Fruitgrowing in Hawke's Bay chronicles changing attitudes to public policy in New Zealand through the life and times of fruitgrowers.

The courage and optimism of those involved through the generations shines through. Neither droughts, floods, frosts, pests, government laws and regulations, war nor trade policies diverted the overall forward momentum of the industry.

In a very readable way 100 Harvests: A History of Fruitgrowing in Hawke's Bay tells its story from the time the first apples were planted in 1840 to the first exports to London in 1892 and the establishment of the Hawke's Bay Fruitgrowers' Association in 1899 up until today. Although much has changed, much remains the same.
