FRUITS RECOMMENDED FOR CULTURE IN
WISCONSIN
The behavior of varieties of fruits is influenced very largely by
their environment. The conditions of soil, exposure and latitude
over such an extensive area as the state of Wisconsin vary greatly
and no list can be given that will prove satisfactory in all localities.
Hardiness of plant and fruit bud has been the leading thought in the
selection of varieties.

Duchess, Hibernal, Liviand Raspberry, Longfield, Lubsk Queen,
