To give a list of varieties best adapted to every part of the United States would exceed the limits of this book. The question is best answered by consulting the most experienced local fruit-growers, by inquiry of the agricultural experiment stations, by study of the reports and attendance upon the meetings of the local and State horticultural societies, and by a study of the general experience of each region as summed up in the biennial reports of the American Pomo-logical Society. At the present writing this latter report is published in Bul. No. 8 of the Division of Pomology of the United States Department of Agriculture, and may be obtained free upon application to the United States Pomologist at Washington, D. C.
