This book contains a collection of classic articles on the subject of hybridising and crossing the grapevine, complete with historical information, simple directions, and helpful tips. Highly accessible and full of invaluable information, these articles have been carefully selected for a modern readership, and will be of considerable utility to budding grape growers. Contents include: “Fruit Growing”, “Botany and Hybridization of the Grape”, “Hybridizing and Crossing”, and “Mode of Operation”. Many vintage books such as this are becoming increasingly rare and expensive. We are republishing this volume now in an affordable, high-quality edition complete with a specially commissioned new introduction on fruit growing.
