FRENCH PRUNES IN CALIFORNIA.
Drying; the French Prune—Fxtraor- '
dinar? Profit of the Industry In
[Hon. Job. Eoutier, of Sacramento County. |
California is certainly the paradise oi
the fruit grower. A fortune can be
made in ten years from a fruit ranch cf
eighty acres.or even of forty acres,mostly
by anybody blessed with that amount of
good land. ■ Now I will demonstrate how
an enterprising man, with a very limited
capital, can also make himself and family
very comfortable and even rich with ten
acres of bottom land,if planted in French
Prunes, or Petite Prunes d'Orgen, which
ia the same thing.
The trees must be grafted or budded
on plum stock, and be one or two years
old—l prefer one year old trees. They
must be planted about twenty-one feet
apart, bo it will take 100 trees per acre.
Good trees ought to be had for twenty
cents apiece, or by the thousand for fif
teen cents. The holes must be dng from
two to three feet square, according to the
quality of the soil.
The fonrth season after planting, and
even the third if your trees have been
well taken care of, you will obtain about
ten pounds of primes to each tree.enough
to initiate yourself to the drying business.
The fifth year you will get about sixty
pounds to"each tree. The sixth year one
hundred and twenty pounds or inoie to
the tree. After that your trees are in full
bearing, producing according to location
and care, from one hundred and fifty to
three hundred pounds to the tree.
The only trouble now is the drying of
the prunes in a satisfactory manner,
without spending thousands of dollars in
building driers. Driers are a necessity
in Oregon, or any other wet country, but
here in California we can dry French
prunes to perfection without driers;
sometimes in one week, and more gen
erally in two weeks, in following the fol
Do not pick the prunes by hand, as
thoy do not all ripen at the same time,
but' in about three weeks. Begin to
shake the trees towards the twentieth of
August, then every week after, and on
the fourth time pick them clean.
Njw for drying. The only apparatus
is an iron kettle holding from twenty
five to fifty gallons of water. To each
twenty gallons of water add one pound
of the best concentrated lie; have the
water boiling, then take a wire basket of
some kind, the home-made one will do
best, put twenty pounds of green prunes
in your basket, dip them in the boiling
kettle, let them remain in there about
one minute, till you perceive that the
skin of your prunes are cracked all over,
then take them out and lay them on a
tray, and in one week or ten days, ac
cording to the heat of the sun, your
prunes will be dried enough to put them
loose in any kind of boxes holding fifty
or seventy-five pounds. The trays can
be made very cheaply (about ten cents
each) with four sawed redwood shaies
three feet long nailed on a very primitive
frame, by anybody who ever used a saw
Now, when your prunes are all dried,
and you want to give them the finishing
gloss for the market, do as follows: Fill
the kettle again with water, but this time
no lye is wanted, and when the water is
boiling steep your prunes in it with your
wire basket for about a minute, till every
prune is made quite hot, then expose
them to the sun for that day, and the
next morning you can pack them in
boxes or sacks, as you prefer. This latf

steeping will make your prunes very
clear and glossy, and will kill every in
sect and destroy their eggs effectually.
If you follow the above directions you
will turn out an article equal to the
best in the market, and will obtain the

tons of dried prunes worth ten

If you deduct ten per cent for la

$1,800 net. paying for the whole of

The sixth year you will have sixty
tons of green fruit, or twenty tons
of dried prunes, worth $ 4,000 00
On the seventh year your trees will
be in full bearing condition, and
will bring each from 150 to 200, or
even 300 pounds to the tree, and 1

All of this from an investment of less
than $1,500. And what would be the
value of such property bringing $5,000 a
year? I suppose not less than (25 000.
