The Improved Giant Cherry

These are the improved descendants of the black cherry shown earlier. They represent perhaps the finest cherry ever developed up to the present time, although still finer ones will doubtless appear in Mr. Burbank's cherry colony in succeeding years. All the cherries in Mr. Burbank's colony are now of aristocratic lineage, and new combinations among them are made through cross-pollenation each season. New seedlings are raised and grafted into the colony, so there are always cions on the tree that are not yet in bearing. and each recurring cherry season brings its surprises.
