Philadelphia's Fruit Consumption.
Two hundred and eighty tons of California grapes, or about 600,000 pounds, in consignments of 60,000 pounds weekly, have been received and sold in Philadelphia during the present season. The fruit is brought to the city in refrigerator cars at tached to express trains, at a cost to the dealer of §1,125 per car, or about six cents for each pound of grapes. The dealers characterize this charge as excessive, and cite it as a proof of the obstacles which they have to en counter in securing a permanent mar ket for California productions in op position to foreign growings. The California grapes wili be out of the market in a couple of weeks. Dispatches received in this city from the growers say, that heavy rains have fallen during the past week, which have rendered the fruit unfit to ship. Had it not been for this fact the lo cal consumption would have exceeded three hundred tons. The largest cargo of cocoa nuts ev er received in Philadelphia, is daily expected on the schooner H. B. Grif fin. The cargo comes from Cartha gena. United States of Colombia, S f < l9B4l” tS ’ aU told ’ f ° ot up a total A busy season in the foreign fruit tiade is anticipated. The steamship Indiana, which arrived lost week brought 100,000 pounds of Almeria giapes, while 1,500 boxes of lemons are among the cargo of the Penn sylvania, due in port to-day. Orau ges, the first shipment of which is now on its way, will be unusually plentiful this season. Lemons, on the contrary, will be scarce, the crop at Malaga having been very small.— Record.
