This manual addresses small and medium-scale farmers of any region or country who have easy access to technology, although it is based on the experience of Latin America and the Caribbean region. This publication presents the main aspects to be taken into account when undertaking a commercial activity on fruits and vegetables. The book provides basic elements on the harvesting, post harvesting, handling and marketing of fresh produce for market. A glossary provides the identification of a great variety of fruits and vegetables with large commercial potential.
