Many types of fruit can be divided into different subgroupings based on botanical, horticultural, or source-of-origin differences such as flowering and fruiting characteristics. By explaining these groupings, this six-page publication encourages growers to establish several fruit types—and harvest a potentially continuous supply of fruit: strawberries from March to June, followed by blackberries May to June, peaches May to September, grapes July to September, and apples July to October. Includes valuable tables of the fruit harvest schedule for Alabama and of characteristics of different fruit subgroups—from typical Alabama fruits such as peaches, plums, and apples, to subtropical and exotic fruits such as kumquat and kiwi.
