In the tropics, fruit crops are often disappointing. Only a minority of tropical fruits are suited for commercial production. Therefore, this Agrodok is written for home gardeners who want better control over their fruit production. The first step is to get a better understanding of growing-, flowering- and propagation habits of various fruit crops, which is explained in detail in this Agrodok. Next, it provides a number of crop care operations to control the annual crop cycle. It also pays some attention to crop protection, harvesting and orchard establishment. This Agrodok is very helpful to improve the understanding of fruit growing in the tropics and can thereby help the fruit grower to reduce the uncertainty in producing a crop.
