The Canadian Horticulturist, says, that the Stonewall Jackson was found growing in a stone wall on the farm of Silas Jackson, in Clarence, Annapolis County, Nova Scotia. The tree is said to be a strong, upright grower when young, and a good bearer. The fruit is described as medium in size, roundish and slightly conical; in color yellow, shaded with light and dark red; the flesh whitish yellow, tender, juicy, sub-acid and of very good quality. In use in January to March. So far as we know its reputation is purely local. There is another Stonewall Jackson grown in Southern Alabama that is quite distinct from the one of Nova Scotia.
