Hybrid Walnuts

In Mr. Burbank's catalogue of 1894, a picture was given of the first nuts ever borne by the Paradox walnut, his celebrated hybrid between the Persian walnut and the California black walnut "These nuts," he said, "as would be expected, are a complete combination of the two species in every respect; one was tested, the others planted, and variations are now in order." The variations appeared in due course, as this picture, showing the fruit of later generations, amply testifies.
