In the whole range of fruits there is nothing more interesting than the Peach, and it is to be regretted that it is dying out as an open-air fruit. Two things have conduced to this: (1) cheap glass; (2) reductions of staff in gardens. It is natural that those who can afford a range of houses should have it, for the crop is sure, and a succession easily provided. At the same time it must not be forgot ten that there are many examples left to prove that outdoor Peach culture is not a lost art, notably at Chiswick.
