In 1873-4 two of the apple grower's

San Jose scale, made their appearance
in California orchards. Mainly
through negligence on the part of
growers, such havoc wag created by
these insects that by 18M0 the Indus
try was practically abandoned in what
had been the foremost districts of the
state. As a result of the calamity
which befell thoso sections, together
with consequent stimulated demand
at high prices, onr apples first came
into prominence and the businoss re
ceived that Impulse which afterward
transformed l'ajitro valley Into the
loading apple producing district of
the West. Our elimatio conditions
proved not so favorable for the rapid
multiplication of the above named
posts and the loss to the orchardist
from this source was very light for
At present the number of apple trees
in this district reaches close to !W0,

eighths of these trees are Newtown

loads llut slightly more than one -third
of the trees have attained full bear

in ylold of the large acreagos which
are just reaching the bearing age, the
Pajaro apple output within the next
live years will amount upwards of 5,
1)00 000 boxes.
The Newtown Pippin on account of
its superior keeping qualities, may be

The poorer grades of apples are
shipped to markets within the state,
or are used for canning, jams, jellies,
cider, vinegar and the dried product.
Though Pajaro can produce New
town Pippins and Uellilowers which
cannot be excelled by any spot on
earth, yet through an unfortunate
combination of circumstances, the re
putation of our fruit has sull'ered ma
terially during recent years. Soma of

much to our discredit, but too late
to remedy the evil oonaooueneea to

the greater portion of the apples have
been handled by packers who buy the

temptation to the packer Is very great
to smuggle inferior fruit into tlie Pox
es marked ' choice.'
Particularly would this inferior
pack be expected when brokers aud
buyers rrom outside markets wink
at tho deception and accept the pack
hcouiiHO they cun get the goods at a
few cents cheaper on the box than
they would have to puy for choice tip
ples. There are reliable puckers iu Wat
souvilln, and if outside buyers would
deal only with those who put out
houestly packed goods, the unscrupu
lous packer would soon be eliminated.
Very few orchardists pack their own
fruit. The growing tendency is to
handle on a plan somewhat similur to
that of the fruit exchanges. In thin
cuse reliuble men have established
huge pucking houses iu town at con
venient places for shipping, Tho or
chardist delivers his crop at this place
in boxes, loose. Prom this time the
packer takes charge of the fruit, fur
nishing labor and material for pack
lug aud also llinliiig a market for the
product. These houses are sending
out a sti ictly reliuble pack and the
plan is proving satisfactory to all con
cerned. Apples are packed In due boxes

box holds about llfty pounds. Koi
