RARE AND CHOICE VARIETIES OF PEARS.
HOVEY & CO. Respectfully invite the attention of amateur cultivators to their immense collection of Fruit Trees, of all kinds, more particularly pears, embracing every variety to be obtained either in Europe or in this country. Their collection is unequalled, both for extent and variety. Upwards of six hundred specimen trees have been planted out on the borders of the walks, extending a mile, a great many of which are already in bearing, affording a fine opportunity for the inspection of the fruit.
They would particularly invite attention to the following kinds, of which they have a fine stock, with the exception of the very rare sorts, of which the number is limited :
Swan's Orange, (or Onondaga).—The finest and largest autumn pear known. Fine thrifty trees, $2 each.
Beurré Langelier.-A fine melting January pear. Fine trees, of all sizes, $1 to $5 each.
Jersey Gratioli.—One of the richest October pears. $1 each.
Grosse Calebasse.- Fruit said to weigh upwards of twenty ounces, and to be eight inches long. Fine trees, $2 each.
Doyenne Boussock.—A very large and delicious October pear. $1 50 each.
St. André.-A new pear from Van Mons, very fine. $1 each.
With many others equally new and rare, of which the following are enumerated :De Lepene,
Odette St. Denis,
