Abstract:

"Well-ripened sound fruit is healthful. It is also a valuable food. It should form a part of every meal, fresh where possible, or dried, canned or otherwise preserved. Home-grown fruit is desirable -- Because it reaches the family fresh and in the best possible condition. Because the family has fruit of which it would often be deprived if it had to be purchased. Because, if the proper varieties to be selected, a continuous supply of fruit of superior quality may be secured regardless of market prices. Because any surplus may be sold without difficulty or may be canned, evaporated, or otherwise conserved for use when fresh fruit is not available. Because the care of the home fruit garden provides for spare time congenial and profitable occupation which is in reality recreation for those who enjoy seeing things grow, This bulletin aims to furnish, in concise form, information that will be of practical help to the beginner in fruit growing. It deals with the widely grown, temperate-climate fruits, such as the apple, pear, peach, and plum. Lists of desirable varieties of these fruits are given for the different parts of the country. Because of the number of fruits considered and the territory covered, cultural directions are necessarily brief, but they cover the most important general points."--Page 2.
