Messrs. Minter and Son have held their annual sales of cherries, A&., during the past week. The first took place on Monday at the "Dover Castle Inn," Greenstreet, when the cherries on the Noud’s Estate, the property of Mr. P. Barling, were sold. The orchards comprise about 86 acres, and the cherries in them realised a total of £1,393 10s., a larger sum than the fruit on this estate has ever fetched on any previous occasion. The cherries on other estates in the neighbourhood were also sold as follows:—In Barbary orchards, Norton, for £40; Greenstreet Upper and Lower orchards, £88 and £60 respectively; Erriott Wood orchards, £51; Ten Acre, Bumpit, and Loyderton orchards, £63; Church orchard, Norton Court Estate, £38; Woodstack and Essex orchards, on the same estate, £42; Mr. E. Blaxland’s orchards in Lynsted and Doddington, £5; Mr. J. Sayer’a orchards at Rodmereham, £16 10s.; Dully orchards, £71 10s.; and Homestall orchards, Doddington, £8. The cherries and black currants on the Court Lodge Farm, Teynham, fetched £10 10s. The Eastling sale took place on Thursday evening, and Ospringe on Friday; the prices we shall publish next week.
