Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Best Apples to Buy and Grow  Jan 15, 2007
The book is full of useful information. Virtually every type of apple is covered with info on disease resistance, how to grow, what they taste like etc. It is small and can easily be dragged around to nurseries when trying to decide what apple trees to buy to grow, which is exactly why we got the book. The reviews I read before purchasing were accurate. Thanks!
Very readable  Oct 16, 2006
I am doing a lot of apple reading for a personal project and found this book to be very helpful. On the same subject Browning's The Story of the Fruit of Temptation is good, andfor a wider view try The Story of the Apple by Juniper.
Lots of useful information in a small, affordable softcover.  Dec 1, 2005
I am impressed with the quantity and quality of information in this nice little book (it would fit in a vehicle's glove-box). It is written by professional apple folks -- nurserymen, orchardists, researchers, breeders and professors -- and the information is up-to-date, which includes several disease-resistant cultivars that were introduced relatively recently. There is instruction for planting, and even grafting, apple trees. An aspiring backyard orchardist would do good in buying this book, as it is especially written with this activity in mind. Example sections are: Restoring a Derelict Apple Tree, Planting an Apple Tree Hedge, and Using Apple Bags (to grow attractive fruit without pesticides being sprayed).
Not only for someone wanting to plant trees, this book is also packed with information about apple fruit. What varieties can be stored through the winter at home, which to choose for baking, for making cider, for fresh eating? The guide to 60 different apple cultivars, both antique and newer varieties, includes for each the most useful information, including appearance and taste, vigor and hardiness, susceptibility or resistance to diseases, blooming and ripening times, and more. Most of the 60 are pictured, but a handful are not. Sources of trees and fruit are listed, and a nice bit of apple history is also included. I find it easy to recommend a book of this quality.
Great book  Aug 8, 2005
Library Journal
Created by the Brooklyn Botanic Garden, this comprehensive guide, written by the likes of pomologists and orchard and nursery specialists, shows readers how to select, grow, and cook one of America's best fruits: apples. The bounty of information includes a history of apples in the United States and descriptions of more than 60 different kinds of apples with tips on harvesting, gardening,and deciding whether the apple is good for eating fresh or more useful if cooked, juiced, or dried. There is also information on how to grow an apple tree, even in small spaces, and a delicious recipe for apple pie. Written for novice and more experienced gardeners and apple lovers, this reasonably priced guide is a useful addition to any library.-Jennifer A.
