"What varieties of fruit should be planted in South Dakota?" is a question asked the nurseryman each spring. The accompanying chart carries a list of varieties that are considered best for all the important fruit crops grown in the State. It is hoped the suggestions will aid the fruit grower in making his selection. The zones into which the State is divided are general. One should realize that there are variations in any zone. Such conditions may determine the selection of a variety. The lack of information on varietal behavior made it necessary to consult those with many years' experience and those trained to make careful observations. A committee representing the South Dakota State Horticulture Society was responsible for collecting much information. Fruit growers in the area contributed valuable information from their experiences. Horticulturists from near-by states, as well as from Canada, furnished valuable assistance. The Department of Horticulture of the South Dakota Agricultural Experiment Station helped in assembling and preparing the material for publication. The varieties listed here represent the thinking of many people.
