LIST OF FRUITS RECOMMENDED FOR
CULTURE IN WISCONSIN.
The behavior of varieties of fruits is influenced very largely by en-
vironment. 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. The following
provisional lists were prepared by the Trial Orchard Committee.
Hardiness of plant and fruit bud has been the leading thought in the
selection of varieties.
APPLES (General List).
Alexander,   Astrachan (Red),   Autumn Strawberry,    Dudley,
Fall Orange,   Fameuse (Snow),     Golden Russett,    Hibernal,
Lowland Raspberry,     Longfield,   Lubsk Queen,     McIntosh,
