The Purchaser of the Burbank Potato
The Burbank potato, Mr. Burbank's first important commercial plant development, was purchased by J.J. Gregory, of Marblehead, Mass. Mr. Gregory named the variety the Burbank seedling. Mr Burbank used the money thus acquired (it was only $150) to pay his expenses to California, where he felt that the work of plant development could be carried out under more advantageous conditions.
