Abstract

The production of bananas and other tropical fruit crops in the subtropics is highly influenced by climate. In the case of bananas, climate causes undesirable physiological phenomena and long cropping cycles, despite which yields obtained in the subtropics can be excellent. True tropical fruits...

Abstract

Pruning, drought stress, and plant growth regulators (PGR) have been utilized to promote off-season flowering with varying success in tropical fruit production. However, removing an existent crop to promote off-season fruit production is not a common cultural practice. Pruning may involve removal...

Abstract

Spain is the main EU producer of tropical and subtropical fruits and the only country on the continent itself currently capable of growing them. As consolidated crops, Spain produces avocados (over 10 000 ha planted, yielding some 70 000 t/year), bananas (production restricted to the Canary...

Abstract

The only tropical and subtropical fruit crops grown commercially are bananas (Canary Islands), avocados (Canary Islands and mainland) and cherimoyas (mainland). Bananas are the main crop of the Canary Islands, with 12 000 ha planted to cv. Dwarf Cavendish. Loquats are grown on a small scale in the...

Abstract

The commercial potential of tropical fruits in the subtropics is reviewed with regard to 4 basic questions: (1) can the species survive? (2) are conditions suitable for good flower initiation and development? (3) are conditions suitable for balanced growth and production? and (4) can good quality...

Abstract

Yields of fruit tree crops are determined primarily by flowering intensity and subsequent fruit set from those flowers. The processes related to flowering and fruit set are discussed in this mini-review particularly for tropical-subtropical behaviour of citrus with some references to subtropical ...

Abstract

High quality tropical fruits, when exported to distant markets, are limited by their postharvest characteristics. These include limited supplies, irregular quality of many of the minor fruit crops, chilling sensitivity, insect disinfestation treatments, shipping and storage duration, and lack of...
