Format: Paperback
This book deals with growing the fruits we all know as well many I'd never heard of, the likes of Jaboticaba,Babaco,Cheimoya,Grumichama etc. which I now own and am eagerly awaiting them fruiting. I found the book extremely informative on all aspects of growing fruit, Especially on growing sub-tropical trees in temperate climates. The book has inspired me to turn my 1360 square metre residential block into an orchard with 45 fruit trees, shrubs and plants. Many of the 200 different trees and plants in the book are very ornamental, and as the author says you can have an ornamental edible garden.

Format: Paperback
Neither a sexy title nor, some would say, subject, but this book has amazed and continues to amaze us. With a new small acreage, we needed a practical guide to planting, growing and harvesting fruit and nut trees, so we bought this. It functions as you'd expect - as a simple, clearly written guide. But the quality of writing is really out of its class, the wit is as dry as a really good martini, and the erudition of the author is quite phenomenal. We might look up, say, growing macadamias in southern Victoria, and find ourselves reading the extract aloud to each other because it's just so damn interesting. I know, you're thinking what pitiably dull people we must be. And we are, but I defy anyone to scan through a few pages without being educated, entertained and bloody impressed. I have no hesitation in recommending this for anyone about to, or growing, fruit and nut trees anywhere from backyards to production horticulture. A superb guide from a superb guide. Get growing stuff!

I have been skimming chapters of this book at work and am impressed enough by the content to buy a copy, but just a heads up that amazon's blabbering blurb is describing a different book. Glowinski is not one of Australia's leading organic growers. He does discuss both organic and chemical options for pest and disease problems but overlooks some safer organic options, in turn steering the reader to spray a host of chemical solutions that he describes as "the devil's own work". If you are wanting to grow organically the book is still very useful, but you will be best off doing further research on the p&d front.

"The Complete Book of Fruit Growing in Australia"

I bought this book for AUD $49.95 eleven years ago, wish I had bought twenty copies, as they would have out performed gold shares I bought back in 2002. Like gold, this book is a very good investment not only price wise but mainly for the valuable information contained within which over time has proved it's self in my small mixed orchard. Doc Glowinski knows his fruit and his vast knowledge of every aspect of numerous fruit trees history's, lifestyle's and wants is concisely covered in this impressive book, I recommend it for anyone who loves fruit trees, even at the price being asked for second hand copies. I will now be keeping my copy in the safe!

This book is Gold.
