Summary This book is one of the 23 volumes in the Crop Production Science in Horticulture Series focusing on horticultural crops from major production systems in temperate, subtropical and tropical climatic areas. The first volume on tropical fruits presented the general aspects of tropical fruit production and covered the major tropical fruits in the international trade, such as banana, pineapple, pawpaw, mango and avocado. This volume focuses on tropical fruits that are already well-known in the tropics but are just recently being introduced to larger temperate city markets. Each of the 12 chapters presents information on taxonomy, cultivars, propagation and orchard management, biotic and abiotic problems, cultivar development and postharvest handling. This book should be of use to all readers and students interested in an introductory text on tropical fruit production.
