Abstract

In the spring of 1878 we began the work of testing, on the college grounds, promising new, or not well known varieties of the orchard fruits, ornamental trees and shrubs, and sending out for trial those that gave most promise. A t this time the Varieties on trial included seedling varieties of the apple with local notoriety from Canada, Wisconsin, Minnesota and Iowa ; such cherries as the Montmorency, Carnation, Plumstone Morello, and the seedlings of Mr. D. B. Weir, of Lacon, Ill.; such native plums as had attracted local attention in the prairie states, and such shrubs and ornamental trees of the eastern nurseries as gave promise of value. Investigation will show as examples that we sent out for trial such apples as the Wealthy, Scott’s Winter, Winsted Pippin, and the Waupacca county seedlings at a time when they were only locally known.
