This section of the book is from the Guide To Hardy Fruits And Ornamentals book, by Thomas Joseph Dwyer, published in 1903.
-- A seedling from the old Brinkle's Orange which was of foreign parentage and too tender for our climate. The canes of Caroline are moderately good growers, exceedingly productive, the fruit fair in size, rather soft and crumbly, color pale salmon, sub-acid and fair in quality; valuable only for home use.
* Golden Queen Raspberry
-- Yellow variety -- The Queen is larger than Brinckle's Orange, firmer, of a much better color; the canes are larger, more productive, and the best of all, they are hardy; the lack of hardiness having made Brinckle's Orange an unpopular fruit. No first class home fruit garden is complete without a good bed of it. It is, without doubt, one of the best flavored fruits we have ever tasted, and this voices the opinion of many who have tested the berry on our grounds. We have fruited it for many years here on our grounds and on different soils; the canes have never been harmed in the least during the winter months and they have always borne an immense quantity of fruit. This variety is now at the head of the raspberry list for table use and is being planted more largely each year. For some reason our best markets discriminate against the yellow raspberry, hence we do not recommend it for that purpose.
