A crop must be considered and treated as a growing crop fromthe time the seed is deposited in the ground, as at that time the seed loses the qualitiesof a chattel, and becomes a part of the freehold, and passes with a sale of it. Wilkinson v. Ketler, GO Ala. 435.Growing crops of grain, and other annual productions raised by cultivation of theearth and industry of man, are personal chattels. Growing trees, fruit, or grass, andother natural products of the earth, are parcel of the land. Green v. Armstrong, 1 Denio (N. Y.) 550.
