Excerpt from The American Fruit Culturist: Containing Directions for the Propagation and Culture of Fruit Trees in the Nursery, Orchard and Garden
The favorable reception of several editions of the Fruit Culturist, has induced the author to revise it thoroughly. The whole has been carefully re-written, and the original amount of matter more than tripled; at the same time the at'tempt has been made to comprise all the really valuable information at present known, by condensation of language, methodical arrangement, and a free use of illustrations.
Careful attention has been given to uniformity and distinctness in the use of terms for describing fruits, and variable points have been as much as possible discarded. Nearly all the descriptions have been drawn from the fruits themselves, carefully compared with descriptions in the principal standard works; and to facilitate the detection of such points of character as are liable to vary with climate, soil, and culture, specimens for comparison have been largely procured, grown in several different states of the Union.
