The clause gives a classification to immature fruit, and consequently it is all right. The difficulty in shipping fruit a distance has been that there is a temptation to pull the fruit before it is sufficiently mature. After it is picked it will develop such a degree of flavour and maturity as will indicate that it is suitable for dessert purposes. We have found in shipping early apples to the West that people pull them before they have reached sufficient growth to continue developing until they have reached a state of maturity. This provision is to meet cases of that kind, and it does it, I think, very fully.
