From the author's preface: ''My intention in preparing the present work has been to bring together, for the guidance of those who live in the tropical and subtropical regions of the globe, the available information concerning the principal fruits cultivated, or which may be cultivated in those regions The banana, the coconut, the pineapple, the citrus fruits, the olive, and the fig are not included, however since these have been fully treated by other writers. For the past seven years, during a large part of which time I have traveled as Agricultural Explorer for the United States Department of Agriculture, I have had exceptional opportunities to gather, at first hand, information for this work.''
