Irarabiings of te Contention HELD AT WHITEWATER, DECEMBER 15TH, 1855. In accordance with an arrangement of the pre- vious evening, the Convention organized at 9 o'clock A. M., and entered upon the discussion of WINTER FRUITS. NortheriiSpy. J. C. BRAYTON, of Aztalan-Tree hardy; unproductive while young; quality " best." ' ABEL SLocui4 Whitewater-Has fruited this variety, at 2, 3, d4 years from grafts inserted in standard trees. Should always be worked on strong stocks. A. (. HANFoRD, of Waukesha-Will do well root-grafted; trees disposed to bear but few specimens while young; think it will eventually prove very productive. A. CHILD, of Delafield-Has had a few specimens from trees seven years planted; consider it a shy bearer while young, trees very vigorous, upright growers; the branches should be well thin- ned, and the head of the tree kept open if well ripened fruit is sought; think the character of this variety not sufficiently estab- lished in this State to recommend for extensive planting. C. H.wizy, of Milwaukee-Has trees 9 years planted which have not yet blossomed; they grow well; soil a clayey loam. It was moved to recommend for general culti- vation. ____ __ - __ - ___ --I
