The content is available online here: http://ohioline.osu.edu/b940/index.html You can access the information by clicking on the pdfs, or printed copies are available for $9.50. At the moment, printed copies are on backorder, but if you want to check back later, the ordering site is here: http://estore.osu-extension.org/ Search for it either by the book name or by its product code, 940.

The book is sturdy, spiral-bound, and full color. There are 148 pages, with lots of photos and diagrams. It covers a range of fruits (apples, pears, apricots, peaches, strawberries, brambles, grapes, and more). Topics include selecting varieties, choosing the planting site, preparing soil, how to plant, how to fertilize, and how to irrigate. In addition to those general topics the guide covers insect, disease, and weed management. This book is suitable for backyard growers, small-scale commercial growers, Master Gardeners, county agents, and anyone interested in fruit production.
