Gardening and growers hoping to rediscover tried-and-true ways of managing fruits, especially those in cultivation over 140 years ago, will appreciate Watts' attention to detail. Instead of endeavoring to include all known varieties of produce, she focuses on selected fruits that she has tested and found most promising. The fruits include apples, pears, cherries, quince, almonds, apricots, nectarines, medlars, gooseberries, currants, and strawberries, nuts, figs, and vines. Of particular significance is her chart on pear "varieties of the last century," (1700-1799), that presents a snapshot of the most popular varieties of that time period.
