Citrus fruit industry; Orange orchards;
This speech was presented to the Riverside Y.M.C.A. on April 13, 1909. Mr. Chapman discusses the necessity of careful handling of the orange, from the tree to the market, so that the oranges are not bruised or damaged. He delves into details such as using the right kind of clippers, placing the fruit in clean picking bags and boxes that are the right size, using the right kind of ladder, and wagons with springs to properly transport the oranges.
