EXPORT OF APPLES

THIS SEASON'S SHIPMENT

The inspection by the Government officers of the first shipment of apples for South America tbi3 year began at Nelson on Wednesday, The shipment will be taken by the steamer leaving Wellington on the 26th of this month. That the importance of establishing an export trade is being realised by tbe growers (?ays the Wellington "Post") is shown by the fact that contracts have been signed by growers at Nelson, Motueka, Chrigtchurcb, Hawka's Bay, Port Albert, and, it n said, O ntral Otago. It is confidently expected that within the next few years the ex port of fruit will be very extensive; and there is no reason- in the opinion of those well ab|e to judge—v fay ifc should not approach, or even equal, our dairy industry

At Motueka the apple crops -are rather short, owing to tbe heavy storm some little time ago The quality is good. 'I hose growers who did not feel the storm have excellent crops.

Last year New Zealand exported 23,000 case 3of apples, principally to South America. This season double that number of cases will be sent away. The export of apples to South America will start in the last week of this month.
