Preserving The Fruit

For this purpose, the fruit must be thoroughly ripe. When fully ripe,

the stem will turn brown, and shrivel somewhat. The fruit is then

carefully gathered, and laid upon a dry floor, or shelves, for a day or

two, so that some of the moisture will evaporate. They can then be

packed in boxes, in about the same manner as described before, but

paper will be better than leaves for this purpose. They are then put

away on shelves, in an airy room, which must, however, be free from

frost, in an even temperature of from 30 deg. to 40 deg.. They should be

examined from time to time, and the decayed berries taken out. They may

thus be kept for several months.
