Excerpt from Brief History of Early Horticulture in Oregon The first settlers found here in the indigenous fruits, a promise of the abundant yield of the cultivated varieties which they were not long in introducing with most gratifying results. There were here the apple - pyrus rivularia; the plum - prunus subcordata; the grape - vitis Californica; two elderberries - sambucus glauca and sambucus pubescens; the blackberry - rubus ursinus; four raspberries - rubus nutkanus, rubus leucodermis, rubus pedatus, and rubus spectabilis; the strawberry - fragaria Chilensis; several wild currants - ribes aureum, and others; three gooseberries, edible - ribes Menziesii four or more cranberries vaccinium - parvifolium, vaccinium ovalifolium, vaccinium macrophyllum; the barberry - berberis aquifolium, known as the Oregon grape, our State flower; salal - gaultheria myrsinites; Juneberry or service berry, black haw - crataeguS Douglasii; filbert - corylus rostrata; chinquapin chesnut - castanopsis crysophylla, and others perhaps not enumerated. The introduction of the first cultivated fruits in the country in 1824 by employees of the Hudson Bay Company is a pretty story with a touch of romance.
