Can Cause Severe Damage
To County Tomato Crops
Dr. P. A. Young
Tropical mites arc in the
chigficr class of the spider
family. They invaded the Low-
er Kio Grande Valley several
years ago, and came to Chero-
kee County first last year on
imported tomato plants. Tropi-
cal mites have been reported in
one tomato field here already
this spring. We learned last
year that these mites can stop
the growth of tomato plants,
turn the leaves yellow, and
make the sides of the fruits
look silvery. Few if any fruits
can be sold from the plants

Tropical mites live mainly on
tomatoes but also may live on

and passion flower plants that
Like other red spiders or
mites, the tropical miles are
about the size of pin-points,
nearly 1 60 of an inch long.
Mites have either 6 or 8 legs.
These mites arc reddish or or-
ange colored and first become
numerous on the lower sides of
tomato leaves where they may
cause white dots at first. Un-
like the other common mites,
tropical mites spin webs over
the tomato leaves and stems on
which they féed. Damage is apt
to be severe when the webs
become conspicuous. Apparently
the mites poison the leaves
when they suck them and de-
stroy the chlorophyll (green
coloring matter). The chloro-
phyll makes all of the food.
Each mite has a slender suck-
ing tube that it inserts into the

You don't need a marble coun-
ter. Just a small bit of equipment
and a little practice, and you'll
be serving the best ice cream
sodas in town. Any drinking glass-
es will do, although tall ones look
most traditional. Iced-tca spoons
are handy because of their long
handles. Add straws to the collec-
tion. And an ice cream scoop if
you want a professional looking
ice cream ball; but you can get
by with a large spoon.
All of these frosty fruit soda
recipes use undiluted, frozen fruit
juice concentrates, except the
lime and lemon. For these, pur-
chase frozen limeade and lemon-
ade concentrates because neither
lime or lemon juice is quite sweet
enough. For extra eye appeal, a
few drops of food coloring may
be used for these sodas.
Frosty fruit sodas with eye-ap-
pealing garnishes have a tart
