Descriptions of each species include appearance, uses, growth habits, and are accompanied by Latin synonymy, native names and propagation tips. The greatest value of the work is in the stunning array of colour photographs, which depict the fruits themselves in various states including cross-section, and for each species there is also a photograph of the plant in flower.
