We are watching with some interest the behavior of this interesting hybrid, as it comes into bearing in other than its original locality. The editor of the Germantown Telegraph reports on some which he has had this season, and which he reports favorably, as to quality. The editor of The Country Gentleman has had some from New Jersey and from Rochester. Of the former he speaks favorably ; the latter were poor. We have had some on our table this winter that were delicious - and some from the same grower that were as poor as poor can be.
