SOME FACTS ABOUT LEMONS. I!lllf ! O"1 Mrf of 8Wlji I'sllt " Ststei tkt Ortat Market. A reporter called on one of tlio largest dealers in fruit in the United States to get some information about the lemon trade. "Nearly all the lem- ons handled in the market" said the dealer "are imported. Sicily contrib- utes more than all other countries put together.

The lemons are cut from the trees when green and placed in magazines where they are subjected to a sweating or purging process. At the end of four or five day the fruit is either stored away in shallow trays or packed for shipment. Lemons gathered in No- vember and December have the best keeping qualities. I have kept lem- ons of this cut from November till June without destroying their market value. When the fruit arrives here it is sold at auction this being the only way in which lemons and oranges are sold to the trade. One year ago a steamer ...
