Medium, or rather small, roundish oblate; yellowish, blotched, and streaked with red; stalk rather short; basin round, slightly plaited; flesh very tender, slightly crisp; texture fine, mild subaeid, juicy, excellent. Begins to ripen with wheat harvest, and continues a month. Fine in all localities. Better in quality for the table than early harvest, but less productive. Golden SWttt.----Medinm, or rather large, roundish, slightly flattened; greenish, becoming pale yellow; stalk an inch or more long, slender; cavity acuminate; basin moderate; flesh very sweet, good, hardly firstrate. The fruit is always fair, the tree a free grower, and very productive. Buds large; leaves sharply serrate. Late in summer. Valuable for domestic animals. lllltlltllll Slllllllltl Ptfll'Illl1lIl.--(S3/n. early summer pearmain of Coxe.)

Size, medium, roundish, usually more or less oblate, smooth; bright straw-color, when ripe; stalk rather short and slender; calyx moderately sunk; flesh nearly white, flavor more
