Warren's Stone Mason. A great improvement on the old Stone Mason.
The heads are deep and nearly round. An excellent sort to carry through the
winter. Its reliability for heading is unsurpassed. Comes in with the Fottler's,
and is a capital sort to succeed the All Seasons. Pound, $2.25; oz., 20 cents;
y+ oz., 5 cents.
The Lupton. This variety is one of the best for a mam crop, combining as it
does the best qualities of the second early and the late sorts. It is also one of
the best keepers we have, coming out in the spring bright and fresh Pound,
$2.00 ; oz., 20 cents ; % oz., 5 cents.
Autumn King, or World Beater. A new strain of late Cabbage, and one
which will supersede the, old, reliable Mammoth Marblehead Cabbage of
years ago. The Autumn King grows to an enormous size, making heads as
solid as a rock, and comes uniformly true to type. It can be relied upon to pro-
duce a greater weight of crop from same space of ground than most of the late
sorts, producing but few outer leaves. Pound, $2.25; oz., 20 cents; % oz.,
5 cents.
Louisville Drumhead. A variety grown largely by market gardeners in the
Southwest. It stands hot weather better than most other sorts, and is a sure
cropper. Resembles Premium Flat Dutch. Pound, $1.75; oz., 20 cents;
% oz., 5 cents.
Vick's Improved Danish Ballhead. Hardest
heading variety known. Remarkable for great weight and long-keeping quali-
ties. The fame of this particular strain has become world-wide, and it stands
without a peer. Introduced by us asa novelty in 1887, and has increased infavor
among shippers and growers, until now it is difficult to supply the demand. It
commands a higher price in the market than any other variety. Heads of medium
size, with few outer leaves, admitting of close planting ; exceedingly fine,
hardest of all, tender, crisp, solid, with no waste heart. Will average six pounds
per head. Do not be deceived by substitutes, such as German Export, Hol-
lander, and other named sorts. There is only one Improved Danish Billhead
Cabbage, and this we import direct from our original grower in Denmark.
Pound, $2.50 ; oz., 25 cents ; % oz., 10 cents ; packet, 5 cents.
Selected Premium Late Flat Dutch. No introduction is neces-
sary for this old, reliable and popular Cabbage. There are many so-called
strains of this valuable variety, but what we offer is our own, having for years
taken great pains to maintain and develop all its good qualities. It produces
large solid heads of superior quality, keeping in best condition for a long
time. Pound, $1.50 ; oz., 15 cents ; % oz., 5 cents.
Improved American Savoy. This variety is decidedly the peer of all Savoy
Cabbages, either lor market or kitchen garden ; a reliable header. The heads
are large and possess a fine, delicate flavor, showing beautiful curled and crim-
pled leaves of a dark rich green color. They are large and very solid. We can
recommend this variety to all those market gardeners who grow Savoys by the
acre for general market. Pound, $1.75 ; oz., 20 cents ; % oz., 5 cents.
Mammoth Rock Red. This is by far the best, largest, and most reliable
heading red Cabbage ever introduced. The head is large, round , very solid,
and of a deep red color. Pound, $2.50; oz., 20 cents ; % oz., 5 cents.
Newark Early Flat Dutch. Large Late Drumhead. All
Head Early. Dwarf Green Curled Savoy. Marblehead
Mammoth Drumhead. Early Blood Red.
Each, $1.50 per pound ; ounce, 15 cents ; quarter ounce, 5 cents.
Sow Chicory seed in the spring, in drills half an inch deep, and in good mellow
soil. The after culture is the same as for Carrots. In the autumn the plants will be
ready for blanching, when it is used as a salad. The dried and prepared roots of
this variety are also used quite extensively as a substitute for and an adulterant
of coffee.
Large Rooted Long Magdeburg. Pound, 80 cents.; oz., 10 cents.;
% oz., 5 cents.
This is a variety of Cabbage largely grown in the South, where it is extensively
used for both man and beast. It forms a large, loose, open head or mass of leaves.
Freezing does not injure the crop. Sow seed in the South from January to May
and August to September. Pound, $1.00 ; oz., 10 cents ; l / 2 oz., 5 cents.
A favorite salad plant in Europe. Sown in August, and protected with a few
leaves during winter, it can be gathered very early in spring. Sown in April, it is
soon fit for use. The leaves are sometimes boiled and served as Spinach.
Pound, 60 cents ; oz., 10 cents ; l / 2 oz., 5 cents.
