Naperville, IL (PressExposure) October 17, 2011 -- A brand new ebook dedicated to buying and caring for indoor fruit trees has been released to the general public. The ebook, titled "Indoor Fruit Trees: Buying and Caring For Your Own Indoor Orchard", was authored by indoor gardening enthusiast Jim Hofman and is available for $7.95 directly from his popular indoor fruit trees website, IndoorCitrusTrees.com .
"Growing indoor fruit trees is one of the fastest growing segments of indoor gardening", states Hofman. The trees themselves are specifically adapted to grow indoors in containers, yet yield the same size fruit as a traditional outdoor fruit tree. "The ebook was created to fill the informational void about buying and caring for these trees", Hofman adds. "I wanted to create an all-in-one resource guide for gardeners interested in learning about indoor fruit trees and why they're so enjoyable to grow."
"Indoor Fruit Trees: Buying and Caring For Your Own Indoor Orchard" covers all aspects of these unique trees, from how and where to buy to specific care tips that ensure growing success. Included are chapters on the various types of trees available, and what to expect in terms of growth and fruit yield.
Indoor fruit trees are a relatively new development. While the most popular variety is the Meyer Lemon, several others are also available. Indoor gardeners are successfully growing limes, oranges, tangerines, pomegranates and more on these small dwarf trees, which typically top out at about four feet in height. Even some lesser known fruit can be grown indoors, like kumquats and figs. The trees are quite hardy, last for many years, and can be grown in any standard plant container.
Hofman and his wife have grown several varieties of these trees for years, prompting him to start IndoorCitrusTrees.com and write the ebook. He states, "People who grow indoor fruit trees find they are a built in money saver, as there's much less need to buy fruit at the store. They also comment the fruit itself is much sweeter and has less seeds than fruit from the supermarket." He adds that the average indoor fruit tree yields over ten pounds of fruit per year, given proper growing conditions and care.
