No Section Offers Such Oppprtunities
For Money making in Fruit:, as Is

From the first time I saw Western
North Carolina, about twenty years
"'.ago,' my belief has been growing in
its ability to grow THE BEST of
apples, in flavor and color.
The mountain portions of Saluda
and Tryon townships, in Polk county,
are especially adapted -to the growth
of rine apples, as well as grapes and
The soil, drainage and long bright
summers with cool nights, grow near
ly all varieties of good appls well, but
I believe the Delicious, Stayman
Winesap, Grimes Golden, Rome Beau
ty, Magnum Bonum, Ben Davis, are
frrown nearer to perfection here than
. anywhere else The fact that apple
trees older than the oldest inhab-
itant ac still bearing app'es, though
' trees have had little or no attention,
shows this to be a natural apple coun
try. ".When apple trees are given a fair
show, with care in spraying, pruning
and cultivation, Polk county apples
are not afraid to compete with the
world in flavor, color and size
Polk county climatic conditions and
the potash in the soil put a color on
its apples that is? just a little finer
any other secton of. the United States
Apples raised in Polk county have
little the best of the markets, owing
to its apples ripening two weeks or
more eariler than other sections of
North Carolina Georgia and Florida,
as well as being near the large mar
kets further north.
The only trouble now in Polk coun
ty is its inability to take advantage
of these markets, owing to the fact it
does not produce enough good apples
to supply the demand. Even the
Northwestern States, Washington,
Idaho and Oregon, ship apples in this
section, at an expense of one dollar
per bushel in freight, simply because
Polk county people do not appreciate
the great opportunities here lor ev
ery one who will who will work to
produce good apples.
With lands at very moderate prices
good markets and prices for good ap
ples, and every prospect for, the de
mand increasing, are not the oppor
tunities for fruit growing in Polk
county an attractive proposition?

in Georgia, and know the peach busi

for an orchard to the receiving the
cash from the large fruikjdealers in
I know that when the last peach is
;n and gone from Georgia, the famous
Elberta is from one and a half to two
weeks later at Tryon, which would fill
in that notch of time between the
Georgia crop and that of eastern
shore of Maryland.
Now when .the Georgia crop comes
in, on account of the crop being so
heavy the p.rice ranges from $1.50 to
$1.75, and as soon as the last Georgia
peaches are gone, the price in New
York arid other eastern cities jumps
up to $4.50 per crate.
Now that is why I know tnat th
Tryon people are in the midst of ,
