TROPICAL FRUIT PRODUCTION IN SUBTROPICAL TAIWAN
Different measures were adopted to overcome the problems encountered in production of tropical fruit in subtropical Taiwan. Among these, strategies to reduce the vegetative growth are the key to induction of flowering and thus lead to fruit production. Methodologies for production of oriental pear, guava, carambola, mango, grapes and wax apple will be illustrated. A theoretical model for forcing production based on wax apple was proposed. Beside the methodologies already in practice, an approach to alter durian production season without chemical application will be proposed.
