Anderdon's. See Old Newington.
Aromatic. See Violette Hative.
Balgowan (Balgone).—Fruit very large, roundish, inclining to ovate. Skin pale green, mottled with red on the shaded side; but entirely covered with deep, bright red on the side next the sun. Flesh with a greenish tinge, veined with red at the stone, melting, very rich, and highly flavoured. Flowers small. Glands kidney-shaped.
A very excellent variety, nearly allied to Violette Hative, but is much hardier and a more vigorous grower than that variety. It ripens in the end of August and beginning of September.
Black. See Early Newington.
Black Murrey. See Murrey.
Boston (Lewis'; Perkins' Seedling).—Fruit very large, roundish oval. Skin bright yellow on the shaded side, and deep red on the side next the sun. Flesh yellow, without any red at the stone, with an agreeable, but not rich, flavour. Flowers small. Glands round.
Remarkable only for the size and beauty of the fruit, which ripens in the middle of September; and requires a warm season to bring it to maturity. It is an American variety.
Bowden.— This is a very large variety, of a round shape. Skin greenish on the shaded side, dark red next the sun, and with a disposition to be russety. The flesh is melting, rich, and sugary, with a slightly astringent flavour. Glands none. Flowers large. Ripe in August.
The tree is a very dwarf and compact grower.
