From Mr.Lorin Blodgett we have the last week in October two magnificent Peaches, one white, one yellow, freestones, weighing together one pound. The flavor was truly delicious. We have tasted the rather new English white peach, Lord Palmerston, and though it ranks high, the white one of Mr. Blodgett is by far the superior. It is a general impression that late peaches are not profitable, because apples, pears, grapes and other things are in competition with them. This is not true of the Philadelphia market. The late peaches of Edwin Satterthwaite are among the most profitable of his crops. These late ones of Mr. Blodgett ought to be of great value.
