A Burbank Strawberry

This picture represents a fruit that was developed in accordance with Mr. Burbank's preconception as to what a perfect strawberry would be like. It ts remarkably symmetrical in shape, of just the right size, and its qualities of firmness of texture and of flavor are ideal. It is the product of a long series of experiments in selective breeding. John Burroughs pronounced it the best strawberry he had ever eaten.
