Ottawa Fruit Trees.

PERRY, OKLA., Dec. 13, 1897.

Three-year-old Orchard of W. H. Baker, Trees Furnished by Chas. C. Alling of the Ottawa Star NurseriesDear Sir: As to the growth and quality of fruit trees I got of the Ottawa Star Nursery two years ago last spring I will say that they have made the largest growth of any trees that have come under my notice in any of the states within the same length of time. The peach trees are twelve feet high and fifteen inches in circumference and had some of as fine peaches the past season as can be produced in the United States. Beginning with the Arkansas Traveler which were fine for their season, Alexander, a larger and much finer peach, Foster, extra fine flavor and good size. The Crawfords are of my best peaches, only being surpassed by the El Berta, which for size, quality and beauty surpasses them all. The Wonderful, ripening the last of September, is one of the best late peaches. All of the plums are fine, the Baton being far in the lead. Trees now stand eleven feet (continued on page 12)
