This historic book may have numerous typos and missing text. Purchasers can download a free scanned copy of the original book (without typos) from the publisher. Not indexed. Not illustrated. 1900 Excerpt: ... in clusters. Skin at first of a lively red, but when fully ripe of a rich dark red. Flesh reddish, tender and melting, very juicy, and at maturity very rich and excellent in flavor. This fruit is most frequently picked while it is yet red and partially acid, and before it attains its proper color or flavor.

In our estimation, there is no cherry for the dessert more delicious than the Belle de Choisy. It comes from the village of Choisy, near Paris, where it was raised in 1760. The habit of the tree is nearly that of the May Duke, the leaves dark, and the head upright. It is hardly a moderate bearer. Fruit round or slightly depressed. Skin very thin and translucent, showing a net-like texture of flesh beneath; in color, pale ambe...
