J.W. Robertson Scott, on The Mystery of Apple Growing

“Need I say there is nowadays no mystery whatever about apple-growing. It is simply a matter of growing the right fruit on the right stocks, planted in the right way in the right soil on the right site, pruning in the right way and hoeing in the right way, and manuring in the right way, and picking the fruit in the right way, and packing it in the right way, and either storing it in the right way or marketing it in the right way at the right places.”

J. W. Robertson Scott, in the foreword to Tree Fruit Growing vol. I – Apples
by Raymond Bush, 1949 edition.

See? Easy.
