All of the 14 or more different types of fruits grown commercially in Alabama are adapted for home production. Deciduous tree fruits, such as peaches and apples, and most small fruits, including blueberries and strawberries, can be grown throughout the state. The 17 publications in the Fruit Culture series will help growers understand how to (1) select fruit types and adapted varieties, (2) choose, prepare, and plant a site, and (3) maintain the orchard and harvest the fruit. While designed primarily for home and hobby producers, the recommendations in these publications often apply to commercial fruit producers as well.
