In a notice of a collection of apples from Ellwanger & Barry the editor of the Garden observes that the flavor of American apples is far superior to that of English apples, even the Ribston pippins from Rochester, and which is the king of all apples in England is pronounced " firm, juicy and delicious." Our climate seems to have such an effect on the juices, that to the taste of the editor, our class of sweet apples seemed like eating a new race of fruits. The pears sent with the apples by E. & B., were not regarded as equal to the best English fruit.
Talman's Sweet is the variety of apple which especially struck the editor of the Garden as of 80 fine a flavor among all apples. This may be a. good hint to exporters.
