Description

Excerpt from Transactions of the Worcester County Horticultural Society, for the Years 1852 and 1853: Containing the Annual Reports of the Committees on Fruits, Flowers, &C.; With the Lists of Premiums Awarded, the Officer of the Society for 1853, and a List of the Members The Roxbury Russett, the Greening, and the Baldwin, do not seem now, to be the same fruits they were years ago. Better cul ture has, if we may so speak, developed them, and greatly improved their bearing qualities, their form, their size, and their flavor. Instead of enjoying the enviable name of engrafted fruit, and the only engrafted fruit of the orchard, improved culture has now forced them to admit into their hallowed society, the Graven stein, the Mother, the Swear, the Esopus Spitzenberg, and a mighty host of others, which time and space will not permit us to enu merate.
