What Apple Will You Plant?
A few weeks since in conversation
with several gentlemen in the Glacier
office on the above subject, I casually
made the remark that I had been do
ing some corresponding, covering a
period of six months, for my own bene
fit in the endeavor to gain the infor
mation which would guide me in se-
. lectiug the best and most profitable
varieties of apples, from a commercial
standpoint, for my own place. (I may
remark, parenthetically, since becom
ing the proud owner of broad acres of
Hood River's best apple land, I have
become a sort of crank on the apple
question. . Not that I now know any
thing on the subject, but that I hope
ome time in the future to know more.)
The Rood editor, hearing my remark,
kindly requested me to reduce the re
sult of my Investigation to writing for
the columns of the Glacier. I de
murred, but he said he would be glad
to have it. This is the only excuse that
1 can offer for assuming to write on a
subject about which I know so little.
The markets have practically de mon
st rated that the cream of prices will
come to the person who can throw up-
on the market in spring, properly
packed, a fine red or crimson apple, of
correspondingly good dessert qualities.
On the basis of the foregoing fact, my
first communication addressed to the
pomologist (Prof. Heiges) U. S. depart
ment of agriculture, Washington, D.C.,
requesting the department to name
four or live varieties ot apples that
should most nearly possess these qual
ities: (1) they-should be of a bright red
or crimson color, (2) they should be of
best dessert qualities and (3) they should
be late keepers. To which I received
' the following reply: '
"U.S. Department of Agriculture,
Division of Pomology, Washington,
D. C, October 9, 1894. Mr. P. A.
Bnyder, Wusco, Oregon Dear Sir:
Yours of the 22d ult., addressed to Prof.
Heiges, was received in his absence. Re
plying to your inquiry, I would state
, you have named three requirements
that are not combined in any variety
of the apple that I know. .Many, of
, our finest dessert varieties are not long
keepers, and those which keep well are
many times not apples of bright red
color. But as I understand you, a Jist
of four or five varieties that approxi
mate your requirements will be satis
factory. So I submit the following:
Paragon, Jonathan,, Esopus, Red Can
ada and VViiiesap.- : '
"All of these varieties will be accept
able in color. Paragon is probably the
only one that will keep in tirst-class con
dition until April or May. The others'
being at their best from January to
March. Jonathan, JDsopus ana uea
Canada are the best in quality on the
list, 1 think. Wiuesap and Red Can
ada will need to be top-grafted on vig
orous stocks, as they are rather weak
, growers and do not make good trees on
their own roots. If other than red
.appler were desired, a list of varieties
or much higher dessert quality could
tttjuude out. Very truly, : .
' . . "Wm. A. Taylor,
"Ass't Pomologist.
-"It may be added that the Paragon,
. .named above, is known more fre
quently by the synonym Mammoth
jilack Twig, and is descended from the
VVlnesap." . , ,
From the above list I have rejected
. ;;3He winesap as being generally too
njull and would cater only to hotel
. nd rest urant trade, which -is a minor
..factor. IhaveaUo rejected the Jona
than because it is a tender apple and
juust be put on the market when there
re too many other bright colored ap
ples to-compete with it. 1 Of the Red
Canada and Paragon, I cannot speak,
lor I can find no specimens in the
valley. , , . , '
.Addressing the same request to the
sBtorrs & Harrison company of Paines
. 'Ville, Ohio, they declined to recconiend
jiny variety, for the reason that apples
color and behave so much differently
liere in our Oregon climate than in the
Eastern states.
To the same request addressed to the
Oregon wholesale nurseries at Salem,
1 received the following reply:
"Salem, Oregon, October, 25, 1894.
P. A. Snyder, Wasco, Oregon Dear
Sir: Your valued favor of the 23d inst.
is at hand and couteuts carefully
"In the long list of apples that it has
keen our experience to see fruited on
this coast and in the East, there are
not very many i that will fill the re
quirements you mention. It is only
by a careful selection that you will
find all the points you name combined
in one apple. Yet these are the most
essential qualities to make un apple
profitable for commercial purposes.
There are other points along with these
you name that we will consider in
recommending varieties to you:
namely, bearing tonalities and size of
the fruits For an tipple with all the
good qualities you mention that is not
a prolific and annual bearer, would not
be profitable,: We would recommend
as follows.: Esopus Spitzeuburg, Wege
ner, Gano, Baldwin. ; Were we plant
ing for ourselves, we would plaea Ben
Davis second on the list. For while it
Las not as good dessert qualities as
some others, it has all the other q uni
ties for making money, , Yours
truly, .. ..
'Oregon Wholesale Nurseries.
"Per M. McDonald,
"Vice President."
From the above list I have rejected
the Ben Davis and the Gano because
of their poor dessert quality. Besides,
the Ben Davis, from what I ,have ob
served, color well only where exposed
to the full sunlight. I have rejected
the Baldwin because of the bitter
brown spot which is almost invariably
found in it, although I understand Mr.
Win. Boorman and a few others have
succeeded in raising it without the
spot; but even with them it is uncer
tain. I shall refer to - the ' Baldwin
again farther on. .
Referring the same, request to the
. Oregon state agricultural college, I re
ceived the following reply:
Oregon State Agricultural College.
Experiment Station, Horticultural
Department, George Coote Horticul
turist. Corvnllis, Oregon, February 13,
1895. P. A. Snyder, Esq., Hood River,
Oregon Detir Sir: Your favor of the
Bthlnst. to hand. The four varieties;
tlittf Caiiada, Wngener, Gano, Jona-i
than) mentioned by you are good. The
accompanying list are all late keepers:
Monmouth Pippin, Willow Twig,
Howies Joinetf bTwckley, Nickerjavh,
Dutch Migiionue, Stenner Pippin.-I
feel, obliged to add the King and
Northern Spy. I have underlined the
varieties 1 should recommend outside
those mentioned by yourself. Very
truly, ... . George Coote."
The first part of the foregoing: refers
to my request for an expression of
opinion concerning the varieties en
closed in parenthesis. ' But the reply
covers too many varieties, and so I con
sider it rather valueless. "
Through Mr. W, J.. Baker Iattempt
edtoget the same proposition before
the recent meeting of horticulturist .In
Portland, but my communication
reacjed him a little too late. However,
after adjournment, be placed the re
quest before a few of the leading or
chardists, and received substantially
the following laconic reply: "Go home
and seek your, information. People
who raise such apples as you do at
Hood River should not come to us
with such queries for such informa
tion." '.- ' - '
I have Inquired liberally amon g
local fruit growers. Mr. M. V. Rand,
on the east side of Hood river, named
for the first three varieties Esopus
Spitzeuburg, Baldwin, York Imperial;
but was at a loss for the other one or
two varieties. . '
Captain Cook, at - the, mouth of
White Salmon, names as his choice
for the first three varieties his seedling
Baldwin (named by the department of
agriculture, Yakima), York imperial
and Esopus Spitzeuburg fourth and
fifth choice not at hand. . -
As I write I have before me a speci
men of the Yakima, and I think I am
not saying too much when I say it is one
of the most magnificent varietiesof win
ter apples I have ever seeu. It is the
Baldwin improved in every wav in
size, keeping quality, dessert quality
and in color, being almost covered
with a dark rich crimson. The cap
tain says it can easilv be kept till May,
and from the specimen before me I
have no reason to doubt it.
Of all the varieties named in answer
to my inquiries, I have selected two be-,
side the Yakima for my own orchard.
They are the Esopus Spitzeuburg and
the Wagener. ..The latter equals the
former in many ways, and for spicy,
aromatic flavor the Wagener surpasses
the Spitzeuburg; and iu keeping qual
ity, under reasonable good care, the
Wagener can be kept till April or the
first of May. I have specimens of the
fruit before me, the keeping quality of
which I am curefully noting. For re
valuing two varieties, I um inclined
to select Paragon and Red Canada. In
quality, Red Canada, Wagener and
Esopus Spitenburg are described in the
catalogue of the American pomological
society as best. If aiiy person having
a personal knowledge of Red Canada
can tell me more of it, I shall be pleased
to hear from him. . It frequently goes
'under the synonym of Old Massacbu
sests None-such.
If any prospective orcnardist gets
a hint or an idea from this communi
cation, I shall be amply repaid for the
trouble of writing it, for I'll confess,
for a long time the more I inquired the
more muddled up 1 became over the
selection of varieties. P. A. Snyder.
