Picking and Preparing Immense
Crops in California Clvss
Employment to Many
Thonnaodi of I'eot-Ie.
(Ily C. W. NULL.)
The packing and preparing for the
market of the vast quantities of drtod
fruit shipped from California and
other fruit raising states is interesting
to all those woo live In localities whertj
little or no fruit is raised for tho tmir
ket,. aad where nono in dried.
Picking and marketing thfe lmmeose
fruit crops In California give employ
ment to many thousands of people
throughout the summer months. The
picking is done by men, but tho pack
ing is done alnioHt entirely by women
and girls. Cherry packers become
very expert, the swiftest workers earn
ing as high aa f 2.60 per day. Ordinary
puckers make from ft. 25 to $1.75 per
The apricot crop gives employment
to more people than the chorry crop,
partly because there is a larger acre
ftSfl of apricots than of cherries and
partly because tho bulk of tho crop la"
The "cots," as they are called, aro
cut smoothly In balf, the pits taken
out and tho holves laid, cup eldo up,
on trays for drying. Defore being
put out In tho sun to dry the fruit is
subjected to tho fumes of burning sul
phur for about thirty mlnutCB. This
bleaches the fruit, kills all germs that
may have found lodgment on the ripe
fruit and hastens tho drying.
A great many fruit growers have
very extensive drying plants, but the
process of drying U about the same la
largo and small plants. After the
trayB of apricots are filled, each tray
Is sprinkled with salt water. Tills fills
the cups with julco and the salt helps
tho sulphur to take- effect. Tho trays
are piled on to cars which run on
tracks through the packing sheds, and
are taken by the Japanese workmen
to tbo sulphur house. This has closet
compartments juut large enough for
the car to fit In. Tho sulphur Is lighted
in the pits in tbe ground and tbe door
of tho closet closed. Frequently, many
sulphur closets are kept, constantly in
After the sulphuring process the
cars are wheeled out Into the drying
fields and the trays are laid flat on
tbe ground. Several lnj are required
to dry the fruit, according to tho
Pcucht H are dried through much the
same process as apricots. Prunes are
not sulphured as are poaches and apri
