9. ORANGE MUsqušE. Miller, No. 9. Duhamel, No. 25. t. 10. Fruit middle sized, round, shaped somewhat like an orange, about two inches deep, and two inches and a quarter in diameter. Eye very small, flat on the summit. Stalk an inch long, obliquely inserted. Skin deeply reticulated like the orange, of a green colour, changing to yellow as it becomes ripe, and marbled with bright red on the sunny side. Flesh rich, with an agreeable musky juice. Ripe the middle and end of August. This succeeds on both the quince and pear stock. 10. Robin E. Duhamel, No. 56. t. 27. Royale d’Eté. Ib. Fruit rather small, roundish turbinate, in the manner of the Musk Robine, about one inch and three quarters deep, and the same in diameter. Eye small, with a closed calyx, placed in a somewhat shallow plaited basin. Stalk half an inch long, thick, inserted without any cavity. Skin pale greenish yellow, marbled with a deeper green, becoming yellow as it ripens. Flesh white, half breaking, with a saccharine musky juice. Ripe the middle and end of August.

Fruit middle-sized, nearly globular, about two inches in diameter. Eye small, open, in a regular round shallow basin. Stalk one inch and a half long, slender, inserted in a rather narrow shallow cavity. Skin of a yellow wax-like colour, marbled with red on the sunny side.

Duhamel, No. 19. t. 8. Amiré roux. Ib. Ognonet. Ib. Fruit middle-sized, of a roundish turbinate figure, about two inches deep, and the same in diameter. Eye small, open, with a very short calyx. Stalk three quarters of an inch long. Skin smooth, yellow on the shaded side, but of a brownish red when fully exposed to the sun. Flesh melting, with an agreeable well flavoured juice.

Fruit below the middle size, round, depressed, about

two inches deep, and two inches and a quarter in diameter. Eye open, placed in a shallow depression. Stalk an inch long, slender, inserted in a small roundish cavity. Skin inclining to yellow, speckled with russet; but of a bright rich red, intermingled with brown spots on the sunny side. Flesh white, juicy, rich, and sugary.

Ripe the middle and end of August.

This succeeds equally well on the Pear and the Quince.

The figure of the Summer Rose is that of an Apple rather than that of a Pear; and M. Noisette remarks, that it is so in a greater degree than any Pear he knows. It is a most excellent and beautiful variety, and bears well on an open standard.

Muscat verd. Miller, No. 17. Duhamel, No. 44. t. 18. Poire de Sillerie. Knoop. Pom. p. 135. Verdasse. Ib.

Flesh half buttery, with abundance of sugary, perfumed, slightly musky juice. Ripe the beginning and middle of August. This grows strong on the Pear, but ill on the Quince. The wood of the Cuisse Madame is long, straight, rather slender, and of a reddish or brownish red colour, totally different from that of the Windsor Pear, and dif. fering also from that of our Jargonelle. 18. EPINE D’E/TÉ. Duhamel, No. 62. t. 30. Fondante Musquée. Ib. Fruit middle-sized, of a pyramidal figure, somewhat like a small Jargonelle, about two inches and three quarters long, and one inch and three quarters in diameter.
