As very little of this specie? of grapes
(Ml! rotumUfoli'i) is known by your
Northern readers, some of them may be
sufficiently enriou to know more of its
jieciiliaritie-i. In coniinon with all the
other native varieties, it U diaxious
Jiolyjmmtf, or in other words the pistil
ale or fruitful plants have a portion of
perfect flowers and a portion of imper
fect Honors in the same clnstcr, while
iUmiimte plants have all the (lowers
entirely destitute of a stigma and pistil,
and aic consequently all entirely barren.
This being llio case, of w hat use are
thee latter plants ? They are not need
ed for the fertilization of the frnit-licar-ing
portion, as suflicientflovters are per
fect to produce an enormous crop of
iruit, aim it makes no difference in the
quantity of fruit if there is not a stami
nate plant within miles of them. This
is the case with hibrusca, cordifolia,
rywrta and rofiiiidifulia. V. aitivalis I
ha e never examined criticall v. 1 have
been cultivating the rotundifolia class
for some thirty years or more, and
also liavc proved some forty or
fifty varieties' of the other classes
which are cultivated, at the North.
Some years since, t abandoned all ex
cept J . rttundtfolia, which I find to be
the only one exempt from disease. I
now hae quite a large variety under
cultivation, having raised a large num
ber of seedlings from tho seHU ol the
Scuppcrnong, which is a whito or yel
lowish grape, with berries varying in
.size from threofourthsiof an mcu to
one and a quarter inches in diameter,
tho clusters varying from one to twenty
berries, and it is the only native grape
which carries the Muscat aroma. None
of the varieties 1 have, ever fail to pro
duce good crop', and the vines are en
tirely free from disease ia vine, let! and.
fruit. The w eight of fruit on each vine,
is beyond belief by those who have never
seen this class in full bearing. I have
this season had arbors crushed down
with the great w eight of the fruit on
them, although they were built of good,
stout chestnut fenec rails. Some grape
'growers complain that the clusters are
too small; this is not so; each tine is a

this difficulty is a problem that has ex

1 reason wnv no conclusions nave ueen
arried at by our best pomologists, and
that will be generally applicable, is that,
as a rule, the conditions necessary to
success are as varying as the localities,
soils and other minor integers surround
ing each orcliard planted. Shall we
then neglect to plant orchards? Iiy no
means. Itut, say many, there is no
money in fruit. The markets are glut
ted except at certain seasons. True
enough, jet this should not prevent any
farmer trom planting an orchard on
the best site near his house possible, or
if the situation is n&t adapted to fruit,
make it so, as far as circumstances will
allow. It is true it is better that the
soil be dry to a good depth. It is true
that orchard trees of no kind will do
well on a soil in which the water stands
near the surface of the ground. It is as
true, however, that there aro few farm
houses in the West, 'where, by proper
means, the drainage may not be accom
plished to the depth of at least four
feet from the surface. This w ill do '
well for all fruits except the pear, and
the cultivation of this fruit in' the West
is not successful except in confined and
widely separated localities. Tho same
may be said of sweet cherries. 1'lunis
are difficult of cultivation, principally
from the attacks oPtho curculio. The
Northwest is not, of course, adapted to
peaches;' aside from these, however,

and if carefully attended to, there will be
hardly a j car without a fair supply of
fruit. There is one thing that too many
farmers forget Jn tliis.connection. That
is, all the fruit gathered for family use
is worth jus the price asked for it by
the village grocer. It is true that many
fanners who will not attend to their or
