' Fruit growers will be interested in the comments regarding 1930 crop pros pects, as published by the Department of Agriculture. For the country as a whole, it would appear that the peach crop has been more or less damaged by the low tem peratures during the past Winter. The comments indicate crop injury generally through the Northeastern and North Central States, 'ranging from complete loss to fair condition. Comments from j the Southern States are more optimistic. In the Northwest trees in certain areas ! have been damaged to some extent, i with only fair prospects on the whole. Whether the reported damage is going to mean more than a good thinning of ! the fruit is difficult to determine at this j early date. | It is too early to determine with any : degree of certainty the effect of weather conditions the past Winter on the apple trees. The general opinion expressed ! would not indicate any widespread in : jury to the trees. Comments on pears run about the same as on apples. No severe damage is evident as yet. In some sections, cherries are reported to have suffered as much as peaches from the low temperatures of the past Win ter. n mast sections no definite in i formation is yet available, but generally there does not now seem to be any | widespread damage. Apple Prices Are Steady. Produce markets last week showed no | uniform trend of prices. Cabbage de ; dined sharply from its recent high levels, as the shipping season opened in South Carolina and other Southern sup plies increased. Apparently the buyers - were no longer willing to pay SIOO per _ ton. Onions also tended downward in price, with the Southern Texas season for Bermuda onions about ready to open. Markets for lettuce were some what unsettled. The Arizona lettuce season was becoming very active, as Imperial Valley of California neared an end. A heavy crop of 7,700.000 crates of Spring lettuce is expected in Arizona and California together. Both the acreage and yield per acre are in creased over last year. Tomato prices were rather irregular, as Florida ship ments rapidly increased and imports from Mexico continued heavy. Missis sippi and Eastern Texas, which ship many tomatoes during May and June, are increasing their acreage this year. Apple prices held about steady. Ship ments of apples from the Northwest in creased, while Eastern movement de creased. Sweet potatoes and straw berries held firmly in most markets. Compared with last season, production of berries in Florida was considerably increased, but Louisiana is reported to have a 12 per cent lighter crop than in 1929. Alabama may have just about as many berries as last year. Louis iana shipments should now Increase fast J and Florida soon end. A general ad THE EVENING STAR. WASHINGTON. D. C., THURSDAY, MARCH 27. 1930. vance last week in the shipping-point price of potatoes and in the Chicago car-lot market was very encouraging to growers and shippers. Florida cel ery also went up 50c per crate in spite ■ of heavier movement from that State. Total Shipments Increase. Spinach output from southern Texas took on new life and shipments in creased very sharply to 660 cars, with 37 from Virginia also. F.o.b. prices in ; Texas declined just as sharply to 50c-55c per bushel basket. String beans, were slightly higher at Florida points, as car-lot movement was re stricted to 75 cars, including the first five of the season from the lower valley of Texas. California asparagus ship ments doubled to a total of 165 cars, and first car was reported from South Caro lina. Movement of carrots decreased to 315 cars for the week, but California cauliflower shipments increased. Grape fruit forwardings were slightly heavier at 715 cars, of which Florida furnished 665. Shipments of oranges decreased to 1,410 cars, with California originating 850 and Florida 560 cars. Combined movement of 23 important fruits and vegetables increased to 15,440 cars for the week, but was 1,560 lighter than a year ago.
