About this book

Grapes are one of the world's most widely planted horticultural crops, used to make a variety of fresh, dried and processed products.

The science of grapes and grape production are discussed through an examination of wine grapes as well as grapes for fresh consumption and raisin production. Providing historical and current information about the grape industry, chapters cover genetics, breeding and cultivars, grapevine growth, development and nutrition, climate requirements, pests and diseases and post-harvest production. This informative text thoroughly covers the influence of the environment on grapevine health and productivity, and informs the reader on how grapes are grown and factors affecting grape quality.
