Following is a communication from M. M. CHASE, of Cimarron
which should be convincing proof that the Cimarron country is the
apple region of the southwest. Mr. Chase is now gathering a
thirty to forty car load 1910 crop:
Cimarron, N. M., March 16, 1010.
Mexico Bureau of Immigration,
The results of fruit growing in Colfax, county out of an experience of nearly forty
years, have demonstrated beyond any question that this is as good a fruit country as any of the
famous fruit growing districts of Colorado or the northwest, and that it has some advantages
over any of them. The late frosts after the fruit is in blossom, are not so frequent nor of such
long duration as in Colorado, thus lessening the cost of smudging and decreasing the percent
age of failures. Those insects and parasites which make fruit growing so uncertain and ex
pensive in many localities do not exist here and so far, spraying has nut been necessary.
Our fruits arc of exceptionally fine flavor and have splendid keeping qualities, the ap
ples particularly are well colored, thin skinned, crisp and juicy. The crops are as certain aa
in any locality where fruit of the highest quality is grown. In most ol the orchards of the
county there have been but few failures from any cause, and in my orchard but one failure in
thirty three years. The trees grow very rapidly under irrigation in this rich soil and come
into bearing early. The older trees have remarkably smooth, clear bark and continue to pro
duce abundant fruit of highest quality.
Altitude, climatic conditions and soil all seem perfectly adapted to fruit growing. Do
not understand me as saying that perfect crops can be grown without labor and attention. The
orchard land should be thoroughly plowed and irrigated at proper intervals. The trees should
be pruned at the right time and in the right way. After the fruit is gathered the ground should
be given a good plowing leaving it rough. It then should be irrigated and laid by for the win
ter. By this means the ground will freeze to a greater depth thus retarding the early budding
in the spring. The life of an apple tree in this locality depends largely upon the use of pruning
tools. Iet the orchardist properly prune his trees, removing each year the old branches which
have done their work and allowing new shoots to take their place and it will prolong the pro
ductive life to the tree for years.
I moved to this country in 1866, and started fruit growing in a small way on my present
ranch three miles north of Cimarron, in 1872, when I set out a small orchard of apples, pears,
plums, cherries and berries. I have added to it from time to time until I now have an orchard
of 65 acres. The orchard began bearing in 1875 76, and I have had but one complete failure
of a crop from that time to this. Prior to 1907 I had no loss worth mentioning from any cause.
It has never been necessary for me to spray or use any preventive against insects. I can say
that I have never found what is known as a wormy apple in my orchard. In my judgment
there is no better paying crop to be grown in Colfax county than the fruit which I have men
tioned, provided the fruit growers will give his land and his trees careful attention. I will say
further that apples, pears, plums, cherries and the small fruits will do as well here as in any
other place in the Rocky Mountain region.
Yours very truly,
M. M. CHASE, Cimarron, N. M.
