Commercial Fruit Growing in Canada, from European Contact to 1930: An Outline now available

I have just published Commercial Fruit Growing in Canada, from European contact to 1930: An Outline. It is available in digital format for CDN$9.99 on iTunes. The book broadly sketches the history of Canada’s commercial fruit growing, touching on various themes such as the continuing refinement of horticultural practices, the process from cultivation to storage to transportation; the rise of standardization; and the influence of science and technology on horticulture. It is not a detailed history of horticultural techniques, such as orchard, market garden or greenhouse cultivation, nor an economic history of the Canadian fruit industry. I leave such histories to future horticultural historians. The story stops at 1930. Why? By 1930, most of the supports, tools, markets and science were in place that would carry the Canadian fruit industry into modern times.
