Among the novelties of the fruit garden, introduced in the present season, is a new raspberry from Norwood, Mass., said to be a hybrid between the red raspberry and the black cap, and having the good qualities of both. The great objection to the improved sorts, now under cultivation, is their tendency to die down during our cold winters. If the “Norwood” proves to be what is claimed for it, it will be a valuable acquisition. See advertisement.
