NEW CITRUS FRUITS.
Information About. New Va rieties of Fruit Trees. Features of the Joppa Orange and Its Origin. The Ruby, Parson Brown and Daucy's Tangierine. Tha Villa Franc a Lemon at the Head of the tUt— Frank Kimball Think* There I( Money In Cit ron Growing. B. M. Lelong, secretary of the atate board of horticulture, haa published a brochure on hew varieties of citrus fruits, from which the following is taken. The pamphlet contains illustra tions which are here omitted : .lOPPA. This is a remarkable orange, as it can be marketed early, being sweet and of a fairly high flavor from about the time it commences to color. In thia respect it compares favorably with imported oranges oftan seen in our markets picked quite green for transportation. It haa the characteristics of an orange t hat comes nearer meeting the wants of all sections than any other, as it can be marketed early and yet remain on the tree till May and June without deterio ration in quality. At the December (1890) meeting of the state horticultural society, I ex hibited specimens which were picked of a quite green color, but were highly flavored and sweet. "The orange is large, seedless, exceed ingly fine grained, and free from 'rag,' the significant term which is applied to the fluffy white layer which lies between the true Bkin and the pulp. The orange, though seediess, haa no rudimentary seed veasel which forms the character istic mark of tbe Navel orange, and occu pies part of the space of the fruit with a non-edible material." —Pacific Rural Press, January 10th. At the June (1891) meeting of the aame aociety, I again exhibited speci mens of the Joppa, and'which were then in prime condition. Fruit—Very uniform, oblong, medium to large, firm, practically seedless, dis tinguished by a well defined corona at the bloasom end; thin rind, solid and free from rag; pulp very fine, sweet, and juicy; resembles the pulp of the Wash ington Navel. The fruit does not drop from the tree, is very tenacious, and of a deep red color. Tree —Thornlea:, an upright and vig orous grower, attains the bearing surface of thrifty seedlings, and is a heavy bearer. A ten-year-old tree from the bud, at Mr. Chapman's, now measures eighteen feet in height and fourteen and one-half feet in diameter; foliage large, dark green, symmetrical, and very abundant; leaves large, lanceolate; petiole prominently winged on either aide. Origin—Mr. A. B. Chapman of San Gabriel, was connected for a number of yeara with the law firm of Glaasell, Chapman & Smith, of Los Angeles, who were tbe attorneys of the Southern Pa cific railroad. In 1877, in conversation with the late Charles Crocker and Gen. D. D. Colton, on their return from the Mediterranean, and while on a tour of inspection, wherein the building of the Santa Ana branch waa in contempla tion, they praised an orange they had seen at Joppa, Paleatine, above all others. Mr. Chapman sent to the American consulate at that point for aome seeds (instead of buds) of that or ange, not thinking they would produce different fruit. He received from the consul aome seeds, which he planted that aame year. Many plants were thua obtained, and when large enough were set out in orchard. All of them bore fruit of different-quality, as ia natural in growing treea from the eeed. This one ad then attained the size of large seed lings, and bore this superior and hand some orange, which was readily dis tinguished by its fine texture, deep red color, smooth skin, and other marked characteristics; which Mr. Chapman named Joppa, in order to indicate tbe locality of its original home in the Holy land. BUBY. "A new orange of superior quality re cently imported. Tree strong, of vigor oua growth and nearly tbornless. Fruit rather below medium size, nearly round, skin very thin and smooth, pulp in March and April ruby red." —[Bulletin No. 1 Division Pomology. While at Riveraide July 21,1891, Hon. E. W. Holmea ahowed me specimens of thia orange grown by him. They ahowed no indications of deterioration, notwith standing the lateness of the season. The'specimens were in their prime, the flavor very good and resembled the Maltese Blood to a considerable extent. The pulp was somewhat of a marked vinous red,but not so'prominent aa in tbe Maltese Blood. There were no indica tions of "blood" coloration on tbe sur face of tbe rind, as ia noticeable in the Maltese Blood. I was highly impressed with the orange, and think it will be worth propagation by those desiring to propagate an orange of vinous red or "blood stained" pulp. Mr. Holmes in formed me that it waa a good grower and a late keeper. rARSON BROWN. This is a favorite early orange in many* parts of Florida, and will no doubt come into favor in this state after ita merits are better known. Trees imported in recent years from Florida have commenced to bear. Fine and highly colored apecimena were shown at the Marysville citrus fair last spring. Theae, however, having been grown on red soil highly impregnated with red oxide of iron, were of a deeper red color than this orange is known to possess. Fruit—Medium, oblong and slightly flattened at the stem end, juicy and sweet —is sweet from the time it com mences to turn, and haß a very smooth skin. Tree—Medium thorny, a fair grower and a good bearer. Originated in Florida. DAUCV'S TANGERINE. This variety has only been introduced within recent yeara, but many trees bore fruit this year that ia quite promising. In another season we shall be better able to judge all its merits and shall lose no time in making them known to the pub lic. I received thia laat season samples of fruit from Florida, which I compared with those grown in thia state, and judging from their appearance and qual ity it ia a variety well worth propagat ing. It is a seedling from the China, a THE LOS ANGELES HERALD: SUNDAY MORNING, NOVEMBER 8, 1891. variety resembling our Mandarin, but oi a better quality. "Size small, much flattened, color deeper and more brilliant than parent (Ohina.) Longitudinal diameter one and three-quarters inches; traverse diameter two and one-fourth inches; the eye set in a deep cavity seven eighths of an inch in diameter; stalk straight and inserted in a ribbed de pression; thickness of Bkin three-six teenths of an inch; general properties i of pulp same as parent, only superior; ! fruit nearly seedless. In flavor and ex ternal appearance this variety is supe rior to the original. Seminal variety of the Tangierine raised by 001. F. L. Daucy, Buena Vista, St. John's county, Florida." —[Report of committee of Florida Fruit Growers' association. "The foliage of Daucy's Tangierine more nearly resembles that of tbe or dinary sweet orange than the other varieties of this class; tree thorny and an upright grower."—[Bulletin No. 1 Division of Pomology. The l|!af of tbe trees I have seen re sembles the leaf of the Satsuma, but is more pointed. It does not have so much of a dwarfish tendency, but I do not think they will make large trees, as those I have seen seemed to be inclined to branch and spread out and become busby. VILLA FRANCA LEMON. "At the head of the list we place this kind, imported from Europe. Strong, vigorous grower, few thorns, leaves long and pointed, very hardy; fruit oblong, j thin skinned, and of superior flavor; ripens in July and August, and often has a second crop later, in November and December, ihe best shipping lemon we know."—[Bulletin No. 1, Division of Pomology. After seeing trees of thie variety fruit ing for two seasons, I became so favor ably impressed with it that in 1886 I secured a few buds from trees in the A. S. Chapman grove at San Gabriel. The growth the buds made was really aston ishing. In one season they had formed a large and symmetrical top. The year following several lemons were seen on the trees, and from that time on they j have continued to bear fruit. Mr. Chap man says that he, also, is very favorably impressed with this lemon, and thinks it will prove a valuable variety to propa gate. "We have this year fruited it, andean i say from personal knowledge that it ranks among tbe first three varieties yet known in the United States. As the specimens tested were grown on young trees, they probably were not as smooth and fine-textured as they would have been if grown on mature trees; certainly not so nice in appearance as the Lisbon, which we deem the standard. But, upon sweating, the skin thinned down excel lently, and showed a texture which in clines us to expect it to prove a fairly good keeper. The acid is strong, the aroma excellent, and in the specimens thus far we have discovered no seed. It has stood the test used to develop bit terness, and it is superior to the Eureka and equal to the Lisbon in this respect. If it shall prove a lemon which will keep as well aa the Lisbon—which can only be thoroughly proven when it comes into extensive bearing—it will be the equal of any lemon grown. The tree will stand frost better than the Eureka and perhaps as well as tbe Lisbon; is more inclined than the latter to be an early bearer, and we can pronounce it a thoroughly safe variety to plant. The only reservation we make is in regard to ita keeping qualities, and of this we cannot know until it ia handled in con siderable quantities.— [Riverside Horti culturist, April 29, 1891. Fruit—Medium size, oblong, slightly pointed at the blosaom end; rind thin, without any trace of bitterness even when green; acid strong; juicy; practi cally seedless. Tree—Practically tbornless; branchea spreading and somewhat, drooping; foliage sufficiently abundant to prevent the fruit from scorching. Thiß variety baa the name of withstanding a lower , temperature than other imported varie ties. PEAR SHAPED LIME (CASTLEMAN.) Fruit—Large, pyriform, of a pale yel low color, with smooth, thin skin, and strong aroma of pomelo. Pulp juicy with strong acid like the vlexiean lime; seeds few and small. The fruita are treated the same as lem ons, and are picked just as they begin to assume a yellowish cast. If allowed to hang on the tree too long, becomes coarse and puffy; also a large cavity forms in center, which j greatly tenda to injure ita shipping I qualities. Tree—Ornamental sort; very large, hardy and prolific; leaf small, some what like the leaf of the Mexican lime. Origin—Mr. I. S. Castleman, of Riv erside, several years ago purchased a number of citruß trees from the Garey nursery at Los Angeles, and among the lot waß this one, which is, no doubt, a sport, or perhaps crossed with tbe lime and pomelo. The tree serves both pur poses—that of being ornamental as well as useful. CITRON OF COMMERCE. Newly introduced varieties sent to Hon. Frank A. Kimball, of National City, by the department of Agriculture, for propagation and diatribution. On May 17, 1890, Mr. Kimball re ceived one hundred plants of the fol lowing varieties. Forty Amalfl, thirty Sorrento, and thirty Calabria. They arrived in excellent condition, having been shipped from Naples, Italy. Every plant had on it more or less scale in sects; some of them were completely covered, bo the bark could hardly be seen. The trees were denuded of every leaf, which, with the packing cases and coverings, were burned, and the trees disinfected, and were then planted (in stead of being distributed to more than thirty individuals scattered through the Aye southern counties of the state, as he was directed to do by tbe depart ment). Although Mr. Kimball woiked faithfully to rid them of all scale, be says be cannot even now aay that a sin gle scale could not be found on tboae which he retained for himself. He ex amined every tree before distributing, and not one haa been sent out which was not perfectly clean. Mr. Kimball retained three trees of each variety for hia own planting. When the treea were diatributed he trimmed them to bal ance the loss of roota which were necessarily destroyed in digging. The email branches thus cut off he used for budding sticks, and thus saved some eight or nine hundred buds, which he had inserted in tb«e-year-old orange stocks, and finds that he haa some exceedingly robust trees. Many of those which were budded June 1, 1890, were four feet high on December 1,1890, and had branches which spread more than three feet. He has planted some six hundred of these trees and they are doing finely; many of them • are loaded with fruit. On some of them he has counted about one hundred fruits, which of course he cut off, ex cept one on each branch. The first buda he set were taken from trees which he feared might not survive, so he de termined to save the varieties by cutting out buds, some of which were not larger than two kernels of wheat. From these he now has trees about five feet high, with branches spreading four feet. June 18,1890, he received ten trees, varieties as follows: Two Porno de Adamo, two Macrocarpo, two Icompio, two Pireltone, and two "citrus medica" (?). These were shipped from Palermo, Sicily, and arrived in a very enfeebled condition, an attempt hav ing been made to pack a box with ten trees, in which not less than fifty should have been packed, loose earth having been thrown .over the roots, with nothing to keep it in place; the result being that the earth was spread all over the bottom of the box, five feet long and fifteen inches wide, leaving the roots of the trees bare. He only saved four trees and a few buds, which are doing well—the buds espe cially. On October 30,1800, he received fifteen citron trees from Catania, Sicily. Va rieties : Eight Cedro Vara, three Testa de Turco, two Piteltone and two Limon zania, which had been budded on old atock, and from aome cause had very poor roots; in fact, Mr. Kimball saya he never before planted trees which had ao poor a chance to live. Of these he aaved seven. None of tbese varieties have been described with any degree of accuracy, and their value can only be determined by growing the fruit and preparing the product for market, which Mr. Kimball hopes to do. Mr. Kimball aaya: "From a good deal of correspondence with Prof. H. E. Van Deman, pomolog ist department of agriculture, as well as with American consuls in the Medi terranean country, I am satisfied there ia a mine of wealth in tbe growing of tbe citron. To Prof. H. E. Van Deman Southern California ia indebted to an extent not at preaent conceived pf. I have seen no other tree which has ao quickly adapted itself to our conditions, nor one which ex dibits such a robust character. The foliage is beautiful, the growing shontß being of a reddish-pur ple color, and very rich; the ripened leaves are not ao dark aa orange leavea, nor yet so light as the lemon; they are very fragrant. Ihe flowers are very similar to the lemon, but have the fra grance of the orange. I hope to see every family in Southern California growing their own 'citron." Mr. Kimball, in a supplemental note, aaya: "I have no hesitation in saying that from all I can learn the citron will pay an enormous profit, as the fruit may be kept many months after it is picked, and may be processed by any one who can prepare preserves of any kind. Among the varietiea there are some which bear fruit weighing six to eight pounds, and the price in Sicily seldom falls below 6 cents per pound when picked, and later on a much higher price. I have distributed nearly 100 of the original importation and thousands of buds." A Novel Oct-.in Uuce- Five vessels sailed out of San Fran cisco bay the other day nnd started on a long race around Cape Horn and up the Atlantic. At their head was the queen of sailing ships, the American four masterl bark Shenandoah, bound for Liverpool with 5,003 tons of wheat, the largest cargo of the kind ever stowed in a sailing vessel. She had been pnt in fine trim especially for thia trial of speed, but he- commander. Captain Murphy, was still a little anxioua at the start, as accidents and unforeseen incidents have much to do in deciding a sailing race. Her great rival ia the British ship Strathearn, Captain Robb. She ia twen ty-five years old, and was for years the wonder of the western waters. She beat all the steam vessels on long runs until the ocean greyhounds came in and over shadowed Her phenomenal time between New York and Liverpool. The other three are the American ship S. D. Carle ton. Captain Amesbury, bound for Havre; the British ship Balkamah, Captain Watts, also for Havre, and the American ship M. P. Grace, Captain De Winter, for New York. All went out on the highest tide, as the Shenandoah draws twenty-seven feet of water and could afford no risks. The Shenandoah and Strathearn "make sail by steam," as the nautical phrase is —that ia, they have donkey engfnes to draw the sails into place, and, according to seamen, it is one of the loveliest sights in the world to see all the white canvas swell in five minutes from bare poles to full rig.—Detroit News. Fell Two Hundred Feet. On one of the most charming lakes of the Salzkammergut, the Hallstadter See, a sad accident happened two daya ago. Our Vienna correspondent teUa us that General yon Hirsch'a wife and her daugh ter had gone from Ischl to spend a few days on the shorea of the small lake, which is surrounded by ateep mountains on all aides. ' They ventured up a pic turesque path to the Saarstein, bnt the mother soon declared this was no walk for her, and they turned back. What had seemed ateep i:i ascending was precipitous in the descent to ladies unused to such exertions. The mother suddenly slipped, and rolling from the path over the side of the mountain fell a distance of 200 feet The daughter, without a moment's consideration, ran full speed after her, rushing wildly down the terribly steep mountain side, and it is wonderful she reached her mother un hurt Frau yon Hirsch lay unconscious for two days and died without regaining consciousness.—London News. Love and Oratory. At the oratorical contest held at Cot ner university at Lincoln, Neb., Marion Gadd took the second prize. The young man hastily left the room after the an nouncement of the prizes. A pistol shot was heard, and when the students rushed out they discovered that Gadd had blown hia brains out with a revolver. Later developments reveal the fact that young Gadd waa deeply in love with the accomplished daughter of one of the wealthiest citizens of Lincoln, and that she had promised to marry him in case he won the first prize in the oratorical contest; otherwise she would have noth ing to do with him. He accepted the proposition, with the above sad result.— Cor. St. Louis Republic The Snake Charmer Died. Carl Wilkey, a Dayton (Term.) snake charmer and tamer, met a horrible death from the effects of a snake bite. Mr. Wilkey had a big rattlesnake, which he took great pride in exhibiting, but despite,all training the snake bit him. He was removing the snake from one box to another, and getting a drop on him the reptile struck him three blows on the hand.—Cor. Atlanta Con stitution. _* MEXICO. GEORGE RICE A trip through old Mexico ia one of peculiar delight, where the most unex pected things or scenes are found in the most unexpected places. Tbe paae, El Paso, Texaa, i 8 the starting point in Mexico, where the tourist boards the Bplendidly equipped train, passes over the Rio Grande into Mexico, stopping at the custom house, at Ciudad de Jua rez, to have his baggage inspected, which, by the way, ia quickly done by gentlemanly offlcera, and really may not be called an inspection. A good supper ia to be had here when you re-enter the Pullman and arrange for a comfortable night's rest. There ia not much to see during the first twenty-four hours; Chi huahua, the capital of the state of the same name, is passed at breakfast time the first morning, where a Chinaman runs a good eating house. There we bid good bye to the heathen, as we do not see any more of them, not even as "washee man." Without stopping to give a description of the route, which is very interesting, and which we described in a former let ter, we enter the City of Mexico, from where all points can be visited and where there ia sight-seeing galore. We went directly to the hotel that bears the name of the Emperor Iturbide, but after the first day, went to the hotel Jardin, which is much better and costs less, no charge for the name. This is a wonderful city, fearfully made, with a population ditto. The City of Mexico is more like a romance than a reality. Its buildings are mostly two and three stories, very plain and with balconies to all upper widows and barred below. The entrances to hotels, residences, cilices, etc., are from the street to an inner court; these courts are most always ornamented with plants and flowers, some beautiful and others are filled with old carriages, boxes, rub bish, pigs, chickens and ragged, dirty Mexicans. There is no aristocratic residence atreet here, for they are sand wiched in anywhere; business blocks, fine residences, and poverty flats. The governments, national and city, are most indulgent with the masses of poor, but happy, contented, indolent people with no wants, unless it is a lottery ticket. Speaking of lottery tickets, I verily believe that fully fifty persons— Mexicans —men, women and children, accosted me on the streets in walking the distance of four blocks, to Bell lot tery tickets. Hundreds of natives in ragged, dirty clothing are everywhere on the streets selling everything. The following articles were offered to me in the order named :| Lottery ticket, En glish walnuts, razor, cookies, live tur keys, tunica, pictures, live dove, leather fruit, pair of pants, roasted corn, combs, puppies, Catholic image of Virgin, jew elry, hot fritters, fried fish, cakes galore, newspapers and lottery tickets till you could not "see straight." The turkeys were alive, on foot, about twenty-five in all, not tied in any way, but herded or driven through one of the principal streets of the city by a Mexican woman and boy. It would fill a book to tell of all the eccentricities we saw in a week. "A few," is what a nice young Span- I iah clerk said, when we asked him if he I apoke English; a notice in the window [ aaid : "Inglisb apoke." i Touriata will find even a smattering of Spanish moat useful, although English ia spoken at most hotels and places of business. There are 127 Catholic churches, most of them large and imposing; the largest cathedral (the largest in America) is 200x432 feet, with two towers 200 feet high. Some of the paintinga within are aaid to be the work of Murillo. The government haa one of the largest palaces in the world, 675 feet front, only two stories high and very di lapidated. Here the president, bis cab inet, congress, etc., hold forth. A mu seum of considerable interest occupiea a part of it. The art gallery, near by, is said by those who know, to" be very fine. We enjoyed it very much and felt very much flattered while admiring an old painting, when the guide informed us "This ia one of Morilla'B famous old masterpieces." The picture that at tracted our attention most was a great canvaa some [15x18 feet in aize, representing the friar Las Casas protecting the Aztecs, a painting by Felix Parra. There were many more grand paintings that would require an artist and weeks of study to fully appre ciate. In the museum the government has attempted to place all objects of histori cal value, and many rare and interest ing relics are to be seen ; Maximilian's coach occupies a room to itself and is said to be the finest and most magnifi cent in the western world, even surpass ing iv elegance the imperial carriage of the czar of Russia. The holiest shrine in Mexico is Guad aloupe, where nearly 400 years ago tbe Holy Virgin appeared on this spot before a pious Indian Juan Diego On Juan Diego tilma—which is. of tbe commonest and cheapest soit—a picture of the virgin was miraculously painted in colors that are still bright. A grand church has been built in com memoration of the event. There are various suburbs of much in terest to be visited, such as San Angel, a Los Angeles, Tacubaya, a sort of Monte Carlo, Chapultepec, where the Mexican White houße and West Point are located; Tacuba, where Alverado, tbe warrior, made his famoua leap for life; the Nocbe Triate (the dismal night) where Cortez sat down and cried after his defeat; the floating gardens, Chin ampat, on the Viga canal —but they don't float, but are aecurely anchored to mother earth. There ia the mint, the Monte Piedad, the national "uncle,"' the national theater, academy of art, national library, Alameda Ana Paseo de la Reforma. Our time is limited and we must leave the capital city. Our trip will be to Queretaro, a most inter esting city, and the place where Maxi milian was captured, court-martialed and shot; Irapuato, the city of straw berries and tube rosea-all-the-year rourd; Guadalajara, the aecond city in aize in tbe republic; Aquas Calientes, noted for its "hot waters;" San Luis Potoai, a great commercial city of over 80,000 inhabitante; to Tampico, the fu ture great harbor and shipping point, located on the Gulf of Mexico.
