About Our Site

FruitExpert was formed to offer a unique reference point on planting, growing, storing and eating fruit.

Fruitexpert was set up to provide information on everything connected to fruit. We want fruitexpert to be THE site you go to when you need facts about fruit. We realise that's a big challenge but we're working on it!

Our expert authors have already looked at fruit and health, covering everything from fruit and weight loss and detoxifying, to eating fruit to improve your mental and physical well-being. They suggest ways to incorporate more fruit into your diet and to encourage children to do the same.

Our authors have introduced us to fruit trees and bushes, tropical and citrus fruits, and they've provided information on growing all kinds of fruit including apricots, rhubarb, grapes and goji berries. They've looked at common gardening problems including disease and pests, as well as offering pruning and harvesting hints, and they've even gone organic!

And they haven't forgotten about the pleasure of enjoying fruit and provide recipes for all kinds of fruity delights including juices, pies, jams and sauces, as well as offering ideas on what to do with that glut of fruit, including freezing and bottling as well as preserving.

We are always on the lookout for topics we haven't covered yet and regularly review the site. And we welcome your questions to our experts so if there's a specific query you have or there's something you'd like information about, just ask!

Our concern was that there was no single UK resource for interesting features and practical advice on this subject.

Our features and articles are written by experts - who have experience, or a particular interest in this area.

Our Background

FruitExpert was founded by John Rowlinson, the founder of PtS.

John, through PtS, is involved in a number of ventures including software and property companies. A percentage of revenue from these activities goes towards funding FruitExpert and a number of similar sites.

Our focus is simply on having experts create the highest quality information possible that is widely read.
