"The most thorough reference on pecan cultivars is now in print."--Dr. W.D. Goff, PECAN SOUTH, 1993. "The book is an encyclopedic volume fusing material from the literature & the author's personal observations on seventy different cultivars. No single cultivar, much less seventy cultivars, has ever been dealt with from such an array of growth & cultivar characteristics."--Dr. I.E. Yates, THE PECAN GROWER, 1993. "It is not only an exceptionally attractive & well-written book, but I am sure it will be a standard reference among the best cultivar editions in all of Horticulture."--Dr. Paul Larsen, Horticulturalist. "PECAN CULTIVARS: THE ORCHARD'S FOUNDATION is truly an outstanding contribution to the pecan industry...a book that will become a standard for the industry..."--Joe Urban, Grower, Crystal City, TX. The book begins with the history of cultivar development. Next, tree & fruit characteristics essential to cultivar success are identified & described. Common cultivars are then discussed individually with reference to these characteristics. The fourth section proposes standards for judging new selections & submits breeding strategies for developing successful cultivars. In the last section, distinguishing nut charcteristics are delineated & used to develop a nut identification key. Orders: Pecan Production Innovations, P.O.
