SERIES: DSIR INFORMATION SERIES 1984

THE TITLE ACCURATELY REFLECTS THE SUBJECT MATTER OF THE BOOK.

IT COVERS MOST ASPECTS OF CHOOSING, PLANTING, GROWING AND HARVESTING PERSIMMONS.

THE SUBJECT IS COVERED THOROUGHLY.

THE BOOK PRESENTS THE FOUR CLASSES OF PERSIMMONS,
(1) ASTRINGENT, UNIFORM COLOR,
(2) ASTRINGENT, COLOR DEPENDING ON SEED CONTENT,
(3) NON-ASTRINGENT, UNIFORM COLOR,
(4)NON-ASTRINGENT, COLOR DEPENDING ON SEED CONTENT.

IT CONTINUES WITH PICTURES AND DISCUSSION OF THE MOST PROMINENT CULTIVARS IN JAPAN, NEW ZEALAND, U.S. AND A FEW OTHER COUNTRIES.

THIS IS FOLLOWED BY SHORT CHAPTERS ON
ROOTSTOCKS AND PROPAGATION;
SHOOT GROWTH, FLOWERING, POLLINATION AND FRUIT DEVELOPMENT;
ORCHARD MANAGEMENT, INCLUDING CLIMATE AND SITE VARIABLES, PRUNING, PESTS, ETC.;
HARVESTING, STORAGE AND PROCESSING;
CAUSES AND REMOVAL OF ASTRINGENCY;
SELLING FRUIT TO JAPAN.

THE AUTHORS ARE EXPERIENCED ACADEMIC EXPERTS AND THEY STRIKE A GOOD BALANCE BETWEEN SCIENTIFIC AND PRACTICAL INFORMATION.

THE TEXT IS QUITE READABLE. THE STATED PURPOSE OF THE BOOK IS TO ENCOURAGE THE DEVELOPMENT OF A PERSIMMON INDUSTRY, AND IT TELLS THE READER MUCH MORE THAN WILL PROBABLY BE NEEDED BY THE HOME GARDENER.

HOWEVER, ONCE A FRUIT TREE IS ESTABLISHED IN A YARD, THE OWNERS WILL LEARN ABOUT ITS BEHAVIOR FROM YEAR TO YEAR, HOW TO TREAT IT AND WHAT TO EXPECT FROM IT, AND THE TREE WILL GRADUALLY BECOME A MEMBER OF THE FAMILY.

THIS BOOK REALLY DOES PROVIDE A VERY READABLE REFERENCE ON PERSIMMONS. Please click here to ask a question
