Loads of info on everything from basic botany to planting persimmons.
Sometimes I would go with Mildred and my little cousins to gather persimmons.
- Horticulture is now the principal industry, and in this field California has no rival in the United States, although ranking after Florida in the growth of some tropical or semi-tropical fruits, - pineapples, guava, limes, pomeloes or grape-fruit and Japanese persimmons.
But the habitats overlap, and persimmons and magnolias of different species are common and notable in both areas.
Of the former the chief kinds are pears, apples, plums, apricots, peaches, persimmons and melons.
