Varieties Best for this
What Should lie Planted
A Lecture from mi Old Fruit
(J rower tliat Should be Kead
by Every Laud-owner.
Last Saturday afternoon, at a meeting
of the Maricopa County Fruit Growers'
Association, I). Turner, one of the val
ley's oldest and most experienced nur
sery men, delivered the following essay
ujion Arizona fruit culture :
At the request of your Secretary I will give a
snun esuy uii mj vAviit;m-u wuii Yttrums
fruits during my residence of about seven years
in this valley, tUTlng my Ideas on tho-e varieties
which I hae tried, taking them up separately.
1. l'EACmn All kinds of peaches seem to do
ell and bear a Rood average crop, but I think
Hint juiiun tiiMKmvuvs uuiu lu iv uiuiv l u
erally planted, ecially If we wish to en
courage canneries and cater to their require
ments. Canneries will demand the jellow
clings and will take all they can get of those
varieties In preference to any others. The
clingstones are also used (or drying and are as
good, If not better, than freestones, as the ilesti
1 more solid and they shrink less to the pound.
This Is the result of my experience and observa
tion In California, where 1 conducted a nursery
business for a number of years. The Idea that
the seeds can not l cut out from cllngstouo
cache Is nonsense, because machines are now
In use that cut and pit peachct of all kinds
w 1th equal rapidity, lliero are a great many
varieties of the jellow clings, each having Its
merits. The ono most under my observation Is
the "Sellers Golden." Of the early varieties
the best 1 have found are the "llrlggs Karly
May" and the "Alexander," both half clings
with flesh of greenish white color.
Of the early freestones the "l'arsons Karly" is
almost identical with "Hales Karly," and is a
profitable early peach to plant, ripening about
the middle of June. It Is u heavy bearer, w 1th
bright-red cheek and a perfect freestone, a good

there are others earlier, such as "Lady Ingold"

any ueunug m me vauey me prevent year.
Of the jellow-lleshed peaches the "Mulr" and
"Smock h ree," taken with tho "Craw ford," run
the bearing season up to tho end of September.
The "Salway" would also come In at this time
to aid In making a long drying season for a first
class drjerand keep it constantly employed.
The "Karly Crawford" has a lid habit of
cracking at the pit, which makes It bad to
handle, but there are other varieties equally as
goal, or even better, such as the "Wheatland,"
which Is very large and ripens about tho same
time. Then comes the Susquehanna" and
"llrandywlne," equally tit for drjlng and can
ning. For w hlte freestones the "Karly York" follow s
the "l'arsons Karly," then the "Nixon's Free,"
U ootls' Late," the "Ilauana" peach and "Silver
-Medal." the last a pure w hlte to the pit. These
varieties, of w hlch mealed peaches are as a rule
more watery than tho yellow and consequently
not as profitable for drying, but they help fill
up the eaon and make a nice article of dried
fruit, If properly put up.
The late peaches that ripen after October 1
are not usually available for the cannery or
dner, as their operations practically close w llh
the delivery of tho "Salway." Such varieties
may, however, be available for supplying local
markets with fresh fruit.
J. AriticoTx The apricot veason is much
shorter than that of iH-aches, some varieties
requiring most expert handling to get rid of the
crop without loss.
The first to ripen In this valley is the "l'rln
gle It is a clingstone and quite profitable If It
can be dlsosed of In sufficient quantities, but
there are now several new varietlesof freestones
coining forward that claim to be still earlier.
If we caii i gel . freestone apricot as early as the
"l'rlngle," that will also make a dryer, then
that Is the one we want for this valley. The
".Newcastle Karly" Is one of the new varieties
mentioned, and 1 expect to determine Its merits
next jear, as I hae planted ten acres. Other
new varieties (hat claim to bo early are "Hlnck
.te fc,,r2 ""l'""." .."Smith's Triumph" and
The standard apricot of the day Is the "Iloyal,"
which Is the greatest bearer, and bears with
greater certainty than any we have, and w hlle
there are finer varieties of fruit, none are so
profitable for commercial purioscs as tho
