The following books on fruit can be read on the web.
The one by TK Lim is 900 pages and costs approx. $350 to buy so if you like any of these books, save them onto your computer as I find that sometimes they may not be there next time! Some of them you will need to click on each chapter to read but remember to save them. It may be a bit tedious to copy the URL into Google so just type in the name of the book & see if you find the URL to match. Sometimes you will only see certain pages so sometimes you need to know how many pages were in the original book and look further for another link. Sometimes you just click on the PDF icon. There are literally dozens of books available on the web and below is a small selection. Enjoy…
