About ALE 1990 OL1

See Schedule of Courses for specific titles.


Open to PACE and degree students. Asynchronous online

Section Description

This completely self-paced online course on Brightspace is based on an affordable and paperback home gardening reference by the instructor—the Fruit Gardeners Bible. Open book tests follow the subjects in the book, and are designed to test and reinforce familiarity with and ability to use the extensive content, and to reinforce key crops, their features, cultural details, and harvest/storage. Intensive familiarity and mastering of the topics are fostered through repeated reviewing and reading of the material, considering relationships, and problem solving.

Section Expectation

After completing this course, students should easily be able to decide what fruits may be desirable and appropriate to grow on a site, have a good basic knowledge of culture including environmentally responsible control of problems, and to have some familiarity with each fruit and some key varieties, whether growing or just buying them in markets.


online tests through the course site (tests are open book, untimed, one on each chapter of the text), plus a couple of simple word jumble exercises help reinforce and review important cultivars (aka varieties).
