It yellows their teeth, makes their breath smell like a trash can, and ruins their health.
It was just as spectacular as those on earth, a brilliant mix of pinks, oranges, burnt yellows, reds, and purples.
In some parts of North America it is found that the white peaches are much less liable to the attack of a disease known as the "yellows" than are the yellow-fleshed ones.
These gave rise in due course to a second generation in which there were three yellows to one green.
In the third generation the yellows from the second generation gave the proportion of one pure yellow, two impure yellows, and one green; while the green seed of the second generation threw only green seeds in the third, fourth and fifth generations.
The pure yellow in the third generation also threw pure yellows in the fourth and fifth and succeeding generations.
The impure yellows, however, in the next generation gave rise to one pure yellow, one pure green, to two impure yellows, and so on from generation to generation.
To diversify properly and mingle well together the reds, whites, purples, yellows and blues, with all their intervening shades, requires considerable taste and powers of combination; and ascertained failures may be rectified at the proper time the next season.
Fattening tegs usually go on to soft turnips in the end of September or beginning of October, and later on to yellows, green-rounds and swedes and, in spring and early summer, mangolds.
On the other hand, yellows are superabundant in autumn, and therefore reds and blues should then be sought for.
