Circular No. 8 - Varieties of Fruit Recommended for Planting in Utah
The following list of recommended varieties of fruit for Utah has been prepared after a mo t thorough canvas of the State and with the co-operation of the several County Horticultural Inspectors. Much credit is due these men in determining the most desirable varieties of fruit to plant.
This list does not include all varieties which might be planted with success, but those which experiment and practical experience have shown to be desirable for general planting. They are arranged in order of popularity.
The varieties in BLACK are recommended especially for commercial planting, while the other sorts if planted for home use will give a succession of fruit throughout the year. Only the winter apples and the best shipping pears, peaches, plums, and cherries should be considered for commercial planting, due to the distance to large markets.
