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. APPLES, HARDIEST VARIETIES Usually Hardy in Any Part of Wisconsin. Duchess, Hibernal, Liviand Raspberry, Longfield, Lubsk Queen, Malinda, Patten Greening, Whitney. APPLES, GENERALLY HARDY Astrachan (Red), Autumn Strawberry, Delicious, Dudley, Fall Orange, Famouse (Snow), Golden Russett, Liviand Raspberry, Long- field, Lubsk Queen, McIntosh, Malinda, McMahan, Newell, Northwest- ern Greening, Duchess, Patten Greening, Saint Lawrence, Salome, Scott, Tolman (Sweet), University, Utter, Wealthy, Westfield (Seek-no. Further), Windsor, Wolf River. APPLES Varieties hardy in special localities.
