Black Antigua (Brown Antigua)

Fruit, cyndrical, inclining to oval, thickly covered with meal, and when ripe dark ochre. Pips, very large and prominent, the scales covering rather more than one-third, and terminating in short blunt points. Flesh, pale yellow, slightly fibrous, rather soft and melting, with a pleasant acid, remarkably juicy, sweet, and highly flavoured. Crown, small. Flowers, purple.

An excellent and highly flavoured pine, if cut when it begins to turn from green to yellow. Mr. Munro says, "During summer it is the most delicious and highly flavoured fruit with which I am acquainted."

Black Jamaica (Montserrat of Speechly; St. Vincent's Sugar-loaf)

Fruit, oval, rather compressed at the base and the crown; dark olive, changing when ripe to dark orange or copper. Pips, roundish, or angular, medium sized, concave in the centre; scales, covering one-third, and terminating in lengthened points. Flesh, pale yellow, firm, slightly stringy, very rich, juicy, and highly flavoured. Crown, large, spreading, and very mealy. Flowers, purple.

An excellent fruit, particularly in the winter months; keeps some time after being ripe, and bears carriage better than any other variety.

Black Sugar-Loaf

Fruit, tall and conical, darkish purple, and slightly mealy before ripening, but light orange when ripe. Pips, above medium size, sometimes a little depressed in the centre; scales, covering one-third, and terminating in a short blunt point. Flesh, very pale lemon-colour, rather stringy, very juicy and sweet, with an agreeable pleasant acid. Crown, rather large. Flowers, lilac.

Blood Red

Fruit, cylindrical, sometimes tapering a little to the summit; dark purple, and very mealy, but when ripe reddish chocolate. Pips, rather medium sized, slightly prominent; scales, half covering them, and terminating abruptly in very short points. Flesh, white, rather soft and melting, somewhat stringy, neither very juicy nor highly flavoured. Crown, medium sized. Flowers, lilac.

This pine is easily distinguished by the purplish red colour of its leaves.
