TO THE

FRUIT AND KITCHEN GARDEN.

CHAP. I.

ALMONDS.

This description of fruit being little known in Great Britain, the following list of the principal varieties cultivated in France is taken from the Transactions of the Horticultural Society. 1. AMANDE COMMUNE.

The nuts of the common almond are about one inch and a quarter long, with a hard smooth shell, containing a kernel of little value in comparison with some others. It is the most common in France, and the young plants from it are used for stocks to bud peaches upon.

2. AMANDE DOUCE À COQUE DURE. — The nuts of these are large, fully one inch and a half long, smooth, and of a dull colour : the shell is thick and hard, the kernel small, and not high flavoured.

This is an improved variety of the former, and differs from it only in having larger fruit. It is a preferable sort for stocks, and used by the more careful of their gardeners.
