PATHFIN|DE.R INCREASING ^^ ” ^ IN POPULARITY rfiere Are Good Pathfinder is one of the most pioductive of all varieties, ranking with Premier^ Catskill and Dresden. It is a strong and robust grower and nearly always makes plenty of plants for an ample uifing bed. Pathfinder is more resistant to the red-stele disease than any other goo(i variety. Growers with red-stele infected soils may still grow Pathfinder profitably. Pathfinder gave greater gain per acre for us in 1941 than any other variety. This was because the season was very dry and we had our Pathfinder on very low springy soil. It is not recommended as far South as Maryland. The berries are soft, rather poor quality, dull red in color and inclined to ripen unevenly. Pathfinder is most promising from Central New Jersey—north. As with Premier, Northern grown Pathfinder berries are firmer, brighter, better quality and far more attractive than those grown farther south. Wherever Catskill is not at its best, Pathfinder is one of the first that should be tried in seeking a productive, profitable ioiidseason variety; On February 25, 1942, Mr. Alonzo C. Lung of DeKalb Co., Indiana wrote us his conclusion about Pathfinder. "With us Pathfinder is the most dependable strawberry we have ever tried and we have tried about all of them. We have had a full crop of Pathfinder when the others were about all destroyed by frost. We have had nearly a full crop of Pathfinder when the others nearly all dried up. It is not as productive as Premier where Premier is at its best, but year after year it will produce far more. The quality is of the best. Bferries very large, solid and beautiful red, attracting a lot of attention." Price list, page 31. DRESDEN

If the Eskimos ev«r wanted to grow strawberries they should try Dresden first. This variety seems to do better the farther North it is grown. Here’s a report dated June 26, 1942, about Dresden from Mrs. Henry Sachese of Manitowoc Co., Wisconsin, way up on the shores of the lake. "Two years ago I set 50 Dresden planU. Now I’ve got the second crop and they are just as grand as they were last year. We live right alongside the West Coast of Lake Michigan where it is quite cold. I find the growth, quality and quantity of Dresden simply wonderful. The berries are mostly large and though rather light in color, the flavor is good. We cater to quite a nice class of folks. I find the berries of the Dresden just the best sellers. The ladies almost quarrel as to who will get them." Dresden makes a vigorous, plant growth in all sections. Here in Maryland the plants are tremendously productive and the berries have a light, attractive color—but they are medium to small in sire, very poor in quality and wiU mosUy rot before they ripen. They should not be grown in the South. Most reports from New York where Dresden originated, and states of simUar latihide are favorable. In productiveness it ranks with the best like Premier, Catskill and Path- finder. Berries produced in the North are much brighter, firmer and of better quaUty although there is some complaint about quaUty even from New York state growers. Dresden is primarily a quantity berry, turning out amazingly high yields. We have some nice plants for northern growers who want to try it. Price list, page 31.
