"With the exception of the Winesap, which re- quires a long season to mature, all are adapted to the "Panhandle" section of Northern Idaho. It is thought by some that the Mcintosh Red and the Wagener are better adapted to Northern Idaho than the Rome Beauty. They are un- doubtedly popular sorts and should be planted where seasons are short and where early maturing varieties are de- sired. The proportion of each variety to be planted deserves careful attention. In the warm valleys it is perhaps best to devote only one-third of the orchard to early winter sorts, such as the Jonathan and Grimes, with the other two-thirds equally divided between Rome Beauty and Winesaps, which are late winter va- i-ieties. In sections where the growing season is short and the early winter varieties really become late winter sorts, and the fall varieties such as Wagener and Mcintosh Red come into season in early winter, the same ratio should be maintained. It will be noted that only a few varieties have been mentioned and this has been done advisedly. The most common mistake made by commer- cial orchardists is in planting too many varieties. Instead of confining their at- tention to the best of a list of varieties adapted to a locality, they plant of each kind, so that when harvest time comes they have more expense and trouble than is necessary to handle the same quantity of a few selected varieties For Home Use The choice of apples for home use and local market offers opportunity for per- sonal preference to a large degree.
