Excerpt from Packing Apples and Peaches
The question then seems to resolve itself into what varie ties are adapted 'to box packing and what ones ought to be packed in the barrel. The varieties that are primarily cook ing apples - lacking the high quality of dessert fruit - sh... ould unquestionably be marketed in the barrel. The consumer cannot pay a fancy price for them nor can the grower afford to go to the expense of careful grading, wrapping and packing in boxes. With varieties such as Grimes, Yellow Newtown Or Delicious, the producer can well afford to take more care, knowing that the demand for fancy fruit of that kind is con stant and the price excellent.
In the following list an attempt is made to classify the varieties into box or barrel stock, the decision in each case being based on the quality and appearance of the fruit. It will be noted that some are adapted to both styles of package.
