Chinquapins and Chestnuts
The chinquapin is a species of chestnut bearing very small nuts, which have, however, the typical chestnut form and quality. The picture, showing chinquapins at the top and chestnuts below, illustrates both the similarity In form and the contrast in size. The strains of the chinquapin have been combined with those of the other chestnuts in Mr. Burbank's complex hybrids.
