The fruiting canes are taken off and are disposed of as in the Four-cane Kniffin.

The plant goes on fruiting as long as the weather is mild and open.

Curiously enough, our own fruiting apple is not a native of America.

A seedling from Bourbourg, Nord, France, first fruiting about 1850.

The date of its first fruiting is not known with certainty but it was probably about 1849.

The seed was planted in 1887 and the original vine came into fruiting in 1889-90.

Another cane sprung from f, but it was too weak to leave for fruiting.

The old canes should be cut out soon after fruiting and burned.

In the meantime, the young canes (for next years fruiting) are growing.

After fruiting, cut the old canes and burn them (as for blackberries).
