Deciduous Fruits (Ⅱ) National Taiwan University

Course Overview

Grapes and many other berry crops are deciduous fruits of important economic potential worldwide. Grapes have been cultivated since the beginning of human civilization and have ranked top on world fruit production and market value. Other berry crops, on the other hands, are relative new in fruit industry, although most have been collected from wild as major or supplemental fruit sources since prehistory. Nevertheless, grapes and berry crops share equal popularity in modern diet attributing to their diversity in size, color, and taste, along with their benefits in human health.
