Experiments were conducted to find a possible relation between the rate of imbibition in apple wood, and its capacity to withstand adverse climatic conditions. Air dry tissue was ground so that 99.5 percent passed through a 100-mesh sieve. The twelve varieties used were subjected to a saturated atmosphere at constant temperature. The amount of imbibition was determined by frequent weighings. The maximum rate, and the greatest total imbibition occurred in those varieties which have proved to be least hardy in Iowa.
