This volume contains a collection of classic articles on the subject of speeding up the growth and maturity of grapes. Written in simple, plain language and full of handy tips and useful information, this is a book that will appeal to anyone occupied in the growing of grapes, and one that would make for a worthy addition to collections of allied literature. The articles are: “Method of Hastening the Maturity of the Grape”, and “Methods of Hastening Maturity”. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. It is with this in mind that we are republishing this book now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on fruit growing.
