many years an index of CRFG publications was determined
to be necessary and past due. Like many other time-consuming
projects it needed a catalyst to get started. In 1988
Emory Walton of the Tri-Counties Chapter computerized
the titles and authors of the CRFG publications for
chapter use. That was the starting point. He gave me
a copy of his work on floppy disk and I decided to expand
it with pertinent cross-references. Most of the titles,
authors and issue references were done by him. David
M. Guggenheim assisted me in reviewing each article
to decide its applicability to the selected headings.
The descriptive paragraphs are predominantly from:
A Guide to Tropical Fruit
Trees and Vines
published by the Brevard Rare Fruit Council of Indiatlantic,
We wish to express our appreciation to Brevard Rare
Fruit Council for allowing us to use its material and
to Don Matchette, who was president of that organization
when this project was started in April 1989; also, to
Claire A. Guggenheim for keyboarding these descriptions
and to Clytia M. Chambers for her many hours of proofreading.
In a project of this magnitude, errors may exist. If
so, I would appreciate hearing about them to correct
future editions. I hope this index will be of value,
not only to those involved in research, but also to
the many CRFG members who seek the personal satisfaction
of increasing their knowledge and gardening techniques.
