Excerpt from Apple and Peach Culturist: Full and Practical Instruction, With Descriptive Catalogues With Illustrations, Also a Treatise on Insects and Their Extermination

One of the most prominent authors on American Horticulture, says in the preface to his excellent work on "Fruit and Fruit Trees," "A man born in one of the largest gardens, and upon the banks of one of the noblest rivers of America, ought to have a natural right to talk about Fruit Trees." Our Grand Sire, Adam, also first saw the light near a garden - cultivated fruit there. That same garden was the source of a "noble river." The author of this work was not born in a garden or on the banks of a noble river; but on the breezy summit of a red-land mountain in Piedmont, Virginia - not so high, perhaps as that mentioned in Holy Writ, where all the kingdoms of the earth were shown in one view, but high enough for salubrious atmosphere, and for the pure air to play among the green foliage and white blossoms of the waving orchards in Spring, and the bending trees laden with red, striped, and golden burdens of tender, luscious apples in Summer and Fall; that might vie with the allegorical apples of Paradise - that flouted their tempting beauty and sweetness amid the groves in the garden of Eden.

The Peach too, the melting, juicy, nectared Peach, in all its perfection, grow here in the bright sun and ambient air. No borer ever, in those days, presumed to work destruction to its roots, or winged insects sting the soft blushing cheek of its downy fruit, that hung in delicious clusters, wooing the hand to reach forth and take.

Reared amid these surroundings, the author, in the recollection regrets the lethargy that at present pervades the South in regard to fruit culture, and the degeneracy of fruits; and like the celebrated author just referred to, thinks he has a right to talk, and investigate the causes of both, to discuss freely all other points appertaining to successful, remunerative fruit-culture.
