  CnrLD-Have twelve bearing trees; in flavor the fruit fully
sustains its Boston reputation; consider it a tardy bearer; occasion-
ally affected with bitter-rot. I esteem the Red Canada, which
has about the same season as the Baldwin, a better fruit for or-
chardists in this climate.
   Recommended for further trial.
  STrAiw-A good grower; requires no pruning; a pretty early
bearer; quality "very good."
  BaAyroN--Hardy; excessively productive; does well either
stock or root-grafted; fruit should not be gathered before the 10th
of October; if picked too early, liable to bitter-rot.
  KINNEY-Makes a beautiful orchard tree.
  SLOOUDI-Exceedingly productive; very valuable.
                      Red Romaite.
  SLoOum-Very productive; in season from March to June; will
keep until August, Never sold the second tree to a purchaser who
had fruited the first!
                  Herefordshire Pesarmain.
  BRArroN-The finest flavored of all early winter sorts; good
grower; moderately productive; not very hardy when root-grafted.
  STARix-Hag fruited it for four years; trees bear well; makes a
large, upright tree.
   Recommended for general cultivation.
  HAloRnD-A great favorite with me; an early bearer; produc-
tive; of excellent quality.
  HwrLzy-Agree with Mr. H.; a first rate variety.
  BRArToN-An excellent sort for the garden; tree does not grow
large enough for the orchard.
