Fruit-Net: Neglected and forgotten Fruit and Berries

Summary
Fruit-Net is an online directory for rare varieties of fruits, berries and wild fruits. The main goal of this project is to facilitate contacts between the upholders - people who collect, preserve, grow, propagate or sell old varieties of fruit and berry plants, classify varieties or study old pomology books. It is a part of European networking of NGOs and other organisations, institutions and privates, dealing in any way with old, local, forgotten, neglected and endangered varieties. It should improve the exchange of information, propagation material, know-how in conservation and talk shop between interested professionals and hobby breeders.
