Tho oiggest apple crop ever grown
in the valley is now being harvested
with an estimate of 325" cars from the
Willamette valley, Robert C. Paulns
said today. And with the orchards now
coming on and the general improved
methods of handling, he predicted that
by the fall of 1921 the valley would
ship a total of more than 1,000 ears.
Beginning next week apple picking
will be in full operation at all tho
plants associated with the Willamette
Valley Fruit Exchange, which is having
its business operated this fall through
tne oaiem j;Tuit union. Earlier var
ieties are now being packed, such as
Kings, Grimes Golden, Jonathans, Wag
ner and Winter Bananas.
It is estimated that the Willamette
Valley Fruit Exchange alone will han
dle this season fully 250 cars, amount
ing to 200,000 boxes. This is about five
times the crop harvested last year.
With all growers in the valley ui
ciated with the Oregon Growers Coopi
orative Association, it is confidently
predicted 'by Mr. Paulus that another
year shipments will be made to all
parts of Europe, as well as Australia.
It was but yesterday that Mr. Paulus
received a telegram from a broker in
San Francisco askinig for quotations on
20,000 boxes of Jonathans or Rome
Beauties for shipment to Australia dur
ing the coming three months. And in
the mail yesterday was an inquiry as to
whether the quotations could" be made
ror shipment ot apples to Norway.
Yesterday Mr. Paulns turned down an
order for five ear loads of Kings as
the. price offered was not jip to pres
ent values. - .
Shipping is already going forward.
