Can anyone recommend good reading sources for fruit trees.  I'm interested in information pertaining to botany, hardiness, arbor-culture, production, etc..  Thanks for any guidance.  Rickster

This has info about a lot of different trees, not all fruiting.

I'd suggest looking for books that are relevant to your local area though, as practices can vary fairly substantially.
