How It Rates and Ranks in New York and
Dixie Nursery, )

Ki>. Timks-E.nikkitusk : While in
New York recently, I made it a point
to inquire very closely as to the merits
0! the I.eConte pear, as viewed by
dealers and growers in that section. 1
was anxious to find out if the fruit was
gaining favor with the dealers and
consumers 1 tound but 011c opinion:
that the I.eContes arc steadily advanc
irg in the scale of merit and populari
ty, and notwithstanding the ovcnvlirlni-
ing fiuit crop this year, the ti uit is in
pressing demand, more so than at any
period of its history, and more so than
any other pear. I tound one man,
Mr. G. 1, Sands, one ot the levelevl-
hc.aded men in the fruit business, who
admitted that he had made a great
mistake in rejecting the LeContc,
which lie did when it was first intro
duced in that market. Such is the
feeling of many fruit dealers in New
York. “O ye ol little faith."
H. II. Sanford.
In connection with the above, we
take the following from the Farmer
and Fruit Grower, in reference to this
“We have received so many letters
in reference to the LeContc pear from
various parties in the south, many of
them residing in Florida, that we desire
to say through a medium that reaches
so many interested—your journal —
that up to this season we were unable
to offer anything satisfactory with ref
ence to its value or success in tiiis
market. So far this season such an
abundance of the LeContc lias been
offered here that the dealers and con
sumers have had ample opportunity to
judge of its merits. The general ver
dict has been decidedly favorable,
much more so than we anticipated.
It is true the LeContc does not com
pare with the Bartlctte or five or six
other well known varieties hero we
might name, in taste, texture or flavor,
but it is so large and showy that it
catches the average buyer, and its
success has been marked. Yesterday
we fairly tested its value side by side
with our most favored variety, the
Bartlett. We had twenty barrels of
the LeContc fiom an Alabama shipper
and a similar number ot barrels, nice
Bartlctts, from a Missouri grower.
The LeContc all sold at $3.10 a bar
rel and the Bartlette at $2.75. 'Fhe
result was something of a surprise to
us. We did not expect to see any
variety beat the Bartlett. However,
we cannot assure shippers that the
LeContc will remain in the ascendency
or remain as attractive as the other
lavored varieties here, but our experi
ence so lar this season convinces us
that it will always do well here, better
than the average good pear.”
