Seed Pods of the Crinum
The seeds of the crinum show an extraordinary range of variation, some of them being small, whereas others are so large as to suggest miniature bulbs. The latter are so succulent that sometimes they sprout when lying on the shelf. On one or two occasions Mr. Burbank has had crinum seeds sent from a distance by mail, which sprouted en route. This is an interesting and very unusual peculiarity.
