Description

Excerpt from Official Report of the Twenty-Sixth Fruit-Growers' Convention of the State of California: Held Under the Auspices of the State Board of Horticulture, at San Francisco, Commencing Tuesday, December 3, and Ending Friday, December 6, 1901 Cherries. - The crop Of cherries during the past season in California was very light, there being less than half as many carloads sent East during the season just closed as during that of one year ago. The quality of the fruit was generally good, in fact superior to that Of the preceding season, and excellent prices were realized. Peaches. - California had a very good crop Of peaches, as is evidenced in the fact that over 500 more carloads were sent East during the last season than during that preceding it. While early peaches realized fine prices, not until the latter part Of August, when a tremendous crop of Eastern peaches was marketed, did a slump occur. With the exception Of Salweys and a few Of the later varieties, Splendid prices prevailed on peaches, netting very satisfactory returns. Plums and Prunes - Only a fair to light crop Of plums and prunes was harvested, the output Of these being nearly twenty per cent less than for the preceding year. Owing to the marvelously fine prices ruling on California plums and prunes during the entire Season, it is safe to say that very nearly everything obtainable under this head was Shipped East, with satisfactory results.
