TAKE TOP PRICE
Hood River valley not only is famou
iur vne uesi. t-irawoerne) anu Dest ap
ples, but it in producing gome flue cher
ries this year. However, it is apparent
. that all growers do not understand the
market conditions as thoroughly as they
buouiu. inaii. uiey ao not under
stand the necessity of culling out small
i iirmtis miu -jmiuig up a laney pacR.
The trouble seems to be the chcrric
are not packed in rows both wuvs and
the bottom of the box ig not tilled
sufficiently to retain the top layer in
position, consequently when the box is
opened it presents au uninviting appear
ance by the rows beine filled in irreim-
Urly and some of the cherries having
dropped out of place. In addition to
this the packers do not make the top
rows uniform in size and put in a small
cherry to fill out the raw.
The Glacier makes these statements
after a conversation with E.H. Sbepard
- manager of the Hood River Fruit Grow
ers' Union. Mr. Sliepard confirms , his
statements by extracts from letters writ
ten by the various dealers who reeeived
cherries handled this year by the union,
The dealer means by fancy stock, cher-
ries that - are properly culled and
packed in the best possible manner.
Given below are a few extracts taken
from ditlierent dealers' letters received
by the Hood River FruitGrowers' Union
referring to cherries that have been
shipped from this valley:
"The condition of our market on
cherries is such that we are confident
that it will not pay you to ship us ex
cept that you have fancy Royal Anns or
"We received from you some different
lots of cherries, some ol winch were
very fancy, and some of which were
very poor, and Blackly packed. Now
we want to say there is absolutely no
uso to ship us anything but absolutely
lancy siock w wis mantel.
The Glacier miuht quote from a num
ber of other letterB received all of which
are similar, and go to show that some
people in Hood River are putting up
nicely packed cherries while others are
not. Another letter:
"I did not notice the shippers' names
on the lew boxes 01 Koyal Anns and
Bines, as they were mixed, but who
ever it was please compliment them on
the way they were packed. We can say
safely, that cherries put up in this way
will bring c sue a box more ttian or
dinarily packed cherries. Such a pack
er deserves credit for his work, but il
would be a benefit to your community
at larffR if thev would i'oiiv after liini."
Now if seems reasonable to suonose
that if a grower fully appreciated the
fact that lie could get zfc to ouc a box
more for cherries properly packed, that
it would pay him well, for the reason
that a fancy pack could be put up at a
very small added cost, say ot a lew cent.
San Joee and Newcastle, California,
ship a great many cherries J-.ast to I hi
cago, New York and Boston. The box
es are all lalieled with the urrowers
name and number, and usually sold by the
large commission houses on the auction
plan basis. They are all graded - and
marked according to the quality, sue
and pack, with, the designating terms
extra fancy, fancy, nine-row, nine and
one-half-row. ten-row, etc.
The commission house handling these
cherries in a large Eastern city issues a
daily sheet of which Mr. Sheimrd
showed the printer a great many. - The
prices that these different grades bring
teach a lesson that would be of profit to
Hood River fruit growers. On olie day's
sheet it was noticed where these ditler
ent grades brought 1.50, $1.), - $1.30,
1.25, $1.15. $1-06, 95c, 75c, 70c, 05c and
00c, In other words, the same variety
of cherries, according to the size and
manner in which they were packed
brought from 60c to f 1.60. That is, the
best put up brought zy2 times as much
us the ordinary grade eluckly packed.
It might be added that the lesson taught
by this deduction not only applies to
our cherries.but to apples and in fact
all the fruit put up anil shipped out of
this valley.- .
"It has also been ascertained" said
Mr. Sliepard, "that nearly all dealers
give as the best telling varieties, Koyal
Anns, Kings, Lamberts, liiugs seem to
be the most popular of any and is cer
tainly the handsomest looking cherry
as well as the best, equal in flavor if not
superior. It is also true that the dark
cherries, Bings and Lamberts present a
better appearance after being shipped,
for the reason the dark cherries do not
show the bruises so distinctly as the
lighter color, such as Anns.
"Markets vary in price, some being
supplied with such a quantity of local
cherries that it is almost impossible to
find any sale, while other markets
bring wonderful prices. One dealer
sold fancy packed Rings as high as $4
per ten pound box, but this market can
not be reached by Hood River fruit
growers until they are able to ship
there in car lots.
"While returns are not completely in
for cherries already shipped and the
season is not over, it is thought they
will bring from 50c to $1.00 according to
variety, quality and condition of the
pack. e ascertained one other fact
that will be of value to the Hood River
cherry growers, and that Hood River
cherries ripen later than most of the
other cherry growing districts, and aft
er other districts have marketed their
crops indications are that cherries will
bring better money, consequently it
would seem best for the Hood River
people to consider the advisability of
planting the later ripening varieties, as
they are then likely to strike the mar
kets when not crowded. While on the
other hand if they planted early varie
ties, the first cherries would come in
com)etition with the bulk of the crop
from other sections, at which time
cherries seem to be the lowest in price
In fact this opinion is in accordance
with a utimberof letters that have been
received, as a great many dealers have
stated there would be a good mar
ket in their city for our cherries when
the others were out af the way. As the
Binge and Lamberts are comparatively
late cherries and very popular, it would
seem that they are worth a great deal
"There is one point further to be con
sidered in reference to cherries, and that
is, should markets be glutted it would
be difficult to dispose of a large crop of
Kings and Lamberts, w hile on the other
hand if a man had Ropal Anns he
could at least sell them to a cannery, re
alizing aliout 3'jc a pound, as the can
neries prefer light cherries, such as Roy
al Anns for canning."
' Work of the Fruit Union.
A. FanVnlierger, writing in thePacific
farmer of his recent visit to Hood Itiver,
In an interview with E. U. Sheppard,
secretary of the Hood River Fruit Grow
ers' union, he referred to the organiza
tion of the union and gave his views of
lie present season's strawberry crop as
follows: - 1
"The Hood River Fruit Growers'
Union was organized in 18(15 with a few
members, and at the present time there
are 272 shares of stock issued, the mem
bership being about 150. The first year's
busiuess was about 300 crates, amount
ing to a little over a carload. This
years business will consist of about
40 straight carloads and about 12 car
loads by express, going to all parts of
the country in small shipments. .
This is the first year that a specia
berry train was ever run out of Hood
iviver, uie u. it. ot jn. furnishing a spe
cial strawberry train, running straight
through from here to Omaha on passeti-
The largest number of carloads shipped
any one uay was vi cars on two consec
utive days. In addition - to this there
was the usual express shipments amoun
ting ai tnat time to about two cars a
The present officers of the association
are: G. J. Gessling, president; K. N.
Benson, vice president; and E. H. Shep
pard, secretary, treasuser and manager,
The crop of strawberries has been
unusually large in other localities this
year, consequently prices for berries
were not as high g they have been in
the past few years; however, there has
not been a time during the season that
there was a period but Hood Kiveratraw
berries were marketed to pay a profit.
During the height of the season prices,
of course, were lower than at any other
time, consequently some timid K'OWers
feared that the returns might not pay
expenses. Men of nerve continued to
pick their patches nmkiug money dur
ing this period, and by ao doing kept
thoir fields cleaned up, and. when the
crop began to decrease they were in a
position to realize the advance in prices,
and are now getting from $1.00 to $2
per crate for their berries, which affords
any man an excellent profit.
Acreage in bearing vines at, the pres
ent time in Hood River Valley and
White Salmon included, is about 1,1 50.
The crop was a large one and amount to
abom Iw cars, this number of cars
was marketed in the face of all other
districts throughout the Middle West
bearing large crops, and flood River
sold its berries f. o. b. on track.
At one time 10 cars of Missouri berries
stood on the track in Omaha on con
signment unsold. At another time nine
cars of consigned berries stood on the
track in Denver, while all Hood River
cars have been sold. .The output of
150 cars was a large crop to market for
the territory we had to supply. There
is always a good demand for fancy
fruit well packed. My impression, from
observation and conversation with the
people handling the output of the valley
this year, who are familiar with con
ditions, is, that if the Hood River grow
ers would have only shipped first class
stock, by that I mean nothing smaller
than 5-tier berries and all berries in
good condition, they would not have
crowded the niarkyt and consequently
would have realized better returns. The
berry business has been so profitable in
Hood River that some of the growers
felt that they could crowd in all the
smaller and overripe berries and got
good returns for them. There is a splen

will dig up these patches that have been
poorly cultivated and in no condition
to produce crops there will continue to
lie a good demand for Hood RiVer berries

condition. It is the Same old story. You

will be plowed under, and nothing but

Sir. Shepard, secretary of the union
owns a line fruit farm near town, 10
acres of the same in strawberries, about
half of same baby, or one-year-old vines,
with average for whole patch of 155
crates per acre, the two-year-old vines
producing 200 crates per acre. The yield
of the season in this patch, as well as in
many others, was cut short by 25 per
cent or more on account of delay in get
ting water in season. Tt is only by the
most thorough care and cultivation that
such good results can be obtained. Lat
er in "nvside Notes ' will be found a
full account of a.visit to a number of
orchard and berry farms in Hood River
vallev, and some of the many changes
and improvements since our trip here
lour yeare ago, noted. Some of the
growers in the lower part of the valley
ceased picking on the 20th, and others
a little later, at which time berries be
gan to come in from the mountain dis
tricts where the season will not close
until the first of July.
Royal Anns From White Salmon.
On display tit Butler k Go's, bank,
last Friday, was a five-pound box of
monster Royal Ann cherries. The
cherries wore four inches in diameter,
highly colored and of even size. For
beauties it would have been impossible
to excel them. They came from C. F.
Waldo's cherry farm at White Salmon.
