Description
Old Vineyard of Rose's Ranche. "The vineyards are a strange sight. Instead of training the vines upon poles or trellises, they are cut down every winter leaving only stumps such as these which show by their size that they are old. The new shoots bear all the fruit, & the sun is so hot that the leaves do not shelter them too much. The stumps look like uncanny imps in grotesque postures. San Gabriel Mission is the source of the grape culture of Southern California. Its vineyard is called the `Mother Vineyard,' & `Mission Grapes' originated there. Next to the orange, the olive is most important in Southern California. The first olive trees in the state were planted at the San Diego Mission, & all others said to have been propagated from them. Those of which there are still about 300, are the only ones old enough to resemble the olives of Italy. I could not find any good picture of olive trees.” 75.
