This is a colorful book accruing much data and many photos. The excellent presentation details 50 of the world's important cultivars. The text is for the apple connoisseur who is interested in outstanding quality varieties, whether old or new. It reflects Warren Manhart's 30 years testing of over 140 varieties. this is not another apple book listing all varieties. It is one that settles on those he has chosen as worthy for his growing area, but his discussion is comprehensive for other districts of the Pacific Northwest... even the world. Manhart wastes no space in this book on apples earning a quality rating below good. Some newer varieties under evaluation are described. This makes it up-to-date as any apple book can be, since the parade of varieties is perpetual. Warren's opinions are clearly stated, easily understood and straight to the point. His witty mannerism makes the reading most enjoyable...something totally missing in the text of most apple books.

But first order a copy of this book. I'm now growing 24 of the varieties he discusses. More to come!
It is well written and practical. The author discusses the varieties he has tested over many years in the Portland Oregon Area. He also discusses in more detail the varieties which are his personal favorites.
The book I bought was used and a bit warped but still a good value and I would buy it again.
If you grow apples you will enjoy this book I think.
