Interpretive Summary:

Technical Abstract: Pomegranate production has a long tradition in the middle eastern and far eastern countries. Because of the antioxidant and other beneficial properties to human health and subsequent increased consumer demand, production of pomegranate in other continents such as North America also gained more popularity. The book contains peer reviewed proceeding manuscripts as invited keynote and regular presentations from the Third International Symposium on Pomegranate and Minor Mediterranean Climate Fruits held in Shandong Province China in September 2013. A total of 67 manuscripts in a volume of 587 print pages are reported in the edited book. The topics cover following major areas of research and state-of-the-art technology on pomegranate and other minor Mediterranean fruits: Physiology and Biochemistry, Secondary Metabolism and Human Health, Integrated Pest Management and Disease Control, Marketing and Economics, Genetic Resources and Breeding, Cultivation Techniques, and Post-harvest Technology. Research scientists and industry leaders from 18 different countries were represented at the conference and contributed to the book. The book serves as the largest collection of the most current knowledge on science and technology of pomegranate in the world.
