Apple Marketing CONDITIONS IN SYDNEY LOCAL GROWERS MAY SELL D GRADE FRUIT [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 22 February 1934
Apple Marketing CONDITIONS IN SYDNEY LOCAL GROWERS MAY SELL D GRADE FRUIT ' (By our Special Correspondent.) At a recent meetin~. of the Boaid of the Fruitgrowers Federation of N.S.W. the effect of the regulation | made by the Australian App.c and Pear Export Council restricting the export of apples overseas to only Standard and1 Special Giades was discussed. It was pointed out that the carrying out of this regulation, would ' make available a tremen dous quantity of Plain Grade apples for the domestic markets, which would probably become flooded with low grade fruit. Consideration had been given to an extension of similar conditions to the domestic markets as for the overseas, but ultimately it was. de cided that instead .'of prohibiting the marketing1 of Plain trrade the re quirements of the grade be raised by_ allowing 5-inch blemish instead of 1-inch as at present. This,- then, would' be the lowest grade under which any interstate fruit could be marketed in New South . Wales. Fru...

First Shipment APPLES OF GOOD QUALITY. [Newspaper Article] — Huon and Derwent Times — 22 February 1934
First Shipment APPLES OF GOOD QUALITY. It must be gratifying to growers to have the reports of the inspectors relative, to the first deliveries of this season's fruit for transport to the English markets per Hobson's Bay, which left during the week-end. The Hobson's Bay lifted about 46,000 cases and. the inspector's re port shows that generally the fruit is in splendid condition, and slightly more forward than is usually the case at this time of the year, owing to the dry season. The expecta tions that the fruit would be under sized have not been borne out, and while in some few cases indications are that the fruit should have been better developed, in the majority of cases the apples are of nice size, and well coloured and clean. A noticeable feature of the ship ment is that it contains a number of consignments of Cleos., which, normally do not go forward until March. Many of them are very well grown, and their color indicates tnao in some districts they are pro bably a month earli...
