ess of Oldenburg, Alexander, Red Beitigheimer, medium

Snow), Ben Davis, Northwestern Greening, Northern Spy,

crab apples are perfectly hardy, Hyslop, Transcendent, and
Siberian crabs are the varieties usually grown, and all are
good. Some of the hardiest pears are the Bartlett, Wilder,
Lawson, Flemish Beauty, Angouleme, and Seckel. Good
hardy plums are the Bradshaw, Pond Seedling, Lombard,
