We use many sources, including our combined 60+ years as professional horticulturists, to produce the variety descriptions and associated information supplied on our website. We do our level best to acknowledge the source of images and information on the page where it has been utilised.

We would like to share these sources with like-minded fruit tree geeks, so here is a list of our favourite info sources. It is by no means complete - we often dip into our library or pick up tid bits from online searches, but these include the main ones.

Please let us know of any others you think are worth including.
