About this book

Fruit growing in the tropical regions of the world is quite different from the more temperate areas where the majority of fruits are strictly seasonal and mostly ripen from mid-Summer to late Autumn. There is no off-season in tropical regions and the variety of available fruits in the Caribbean has increased with the introduction of new species from other parts of the tropical world.

Fruit Trees of the Caribbean describes more than ninety varieties of trees and their fruits. In botanical terms some fruits will be known to many people as spices such as cinnamon and cloves or parts of the fruits such as nutmeg and mace. There is at least one species listed that cannot be eaten as it is poisonous. The description of the trees and shrubs is comprehensive but what cannot be accurately described are the rich and varied flavours that are totally unique and delicious.

This is a gem for its wide island coverage and extensive range of trees. The author has done an excellent job in producing this very readable and easily understood book. The photographs are of excellent quality and it is a must for locals and visitor to the Caribbean alike. Alfred Sangster, The Observer"
