Luther Burbank at the Age of Twenty-five
This picture was taken not long after Mr. Burbank attained his first very notable success in plant development, through the production of the Burbank potato. He was at this time a highly accomplished gardener, thoroughly expert in all the details of plant management. The following year (1875) he was to migrate to California to takeup his permanent abode at Santa Rosa.
