(PRWEB) September 25, 2011
The Pomology Magazine is divided into two major parts, i.e., fruit crops and pomology research.
The Fruit Crops category comprises traditional major tree crops plus a large number of minor fruits mainly grown in the subtropics and tropics. It provides information about the numerous aspects of cultivation, production, postharvest, storage and marketing of fruits which are consumed raw, cooked or preserved. This category currently comprises the crops apple, avocado, banana, fig, mandarin, mango, mikan, orange, pineapple, pomelo and tangerine. It also includes a comprehensive category on production of grapes including cultivation, pests and diseases, harvest, postharvest, and storage, and on winemaking, i.e., enology or oenology.
Pomology.org's top 20 pages currently include crops of pomelo, apple, winegrape, mango, and calamondin which is a miniature orange.
The Pomology Research category provides scientific information and links to peer-reviewed papers, research articles, theses, books, abstracts, and other scholarly literature on the cultivation and production of fruits. It is currently subdivided into 33 sections. Besides a large collection of references, each of these sections includes links to scientific definitions and reviews on particular scientific terms.
