9.G& Ct0d7^T~O?<s ■ Chappelow Avocado. AHOCM*CO BALTIMORE PROMISING NEW FBTJITS. 365 stem stout; surface undulating, smooth, glossy; color dull purple,with reddish-brown dots; apex a mere dot; skin very thin, tender,adhering closely; flesh pale greenish-yellow, buttery; seed large inproportion to size of fruit, roundish conical, filling internal cavity;flavor pleasant, though less rich than the best varieties of the WestIndian type. Season, July to October at Monrovia, Cal. The tree is a vigorous, rather diffuse grower, with slender wood. Itis productive, although being an early bloomer it is sometimes caughtby frost. It is considered worthy of testing in the thermal belts ofsouthern California, and for domestic use along the northern edge ofthe avocado districts of Florida, where its superior hardiness is likelyto outweigh the disadvantages of relatively small size and early timeof ripening. The specimen illustrated on Plate XXXI was grown on the originaltree on the grounds
