A Gold Medal From the Pan-American Exposition
This was a special award made to Mr. Burbank in 1901 in recognition of his development of the wonderful new fruit called the plumcot. As was remarked at the time, the Exposition could not well have offered a prize for such an exhibit, inasmuch as no such hybrid fruit was known, or its production anticipated. But the authorities judged the strange new fruit worthy of their highest award none the less.
