Supplement No. 1.
PLANT-QUARANTINE IMPORT RESTRICTIONS
BRITISH MANDATE OF PALESTINE
Grading of Fruits
On page 3 of B. E. P. Q.-370 it is indicated that plums,
quinces, apples, and pears may be imported into Palestine from the
United States and certain other countries without a phytosanitary
certificate if of the following grades: "Fancy ITo. 1", "Extra Fancy",
These grades do not correspond exactly to the U. S. standard
grades for apples and pears, there being no U. S. grade "Fancy No. 1",
but apparently were based on the U. S. standards, therefore, the
question was taken up with the authorities of Palestine.
Under date Jerusalem, August S, 1936, the American Consul
General despatched the following reply:
Department of Agriculture and Fisheries states
Palestine grade fruit "Fancy No. l1' means "U. S. No. 1"
and that Palestine Government will accept without cer-
tificate (Phytosanitary certificate) the following United
States grades: "U. S. Fancy", "U. S. No. 1", "Extra Fancy",
