Excerpt from Transactions of the Maine State Pomological Society: For the Year 1906

The 1905 Apples.

So far as it was possible to do so, many apples grown last year were held in storage until after our report for 1905 was made up, hence it seems proper to refer to their sale. The prices in some cases were well nigh record-breakers and deserve mention in this report.

The six hundred barrels grown in the $2850 orchard referred to in last year's report were sold for $3.50 per barrel. So that the crop went a long way toward returning the purchase money in less than one year from the purchase of the orchard. This year (1906), it may be added, this orchard produced two hundred barrels.

One grower in Skowhegan had 264 barrels of Ben Davis for which he received $1056 at the railroad station in that town.

Eighty barrels of Gravensteins from the Pope orchard returned a check for $360.

A carload of apples from the Staples' orchard, containing ninety-one barrels of No. 2 and 110 barrels of No. 1, sold in the Boston market for a net sum of $911.91. The Northern Spy in the lot sold for $8 per barrel. Hall & Cole stated that this was the most money paid for a carload of apples sold in Boston during the season.


Better Culture.

Our people are beginning to realize the value of the orchard, and they realize as never before that to produce the best results the orchard must have the best treatment. It is interesting to note that the most productive orchards this year are those that have received the most intelligent care. As one goes about over the State the evidence of this accumulates.
