A Beautiful Seedling Apple
Every orchardist is aware that seedlings grown from any standard variety of apple may show the utmost diversity of size and form and color and flavor. Any one may begin breeding experiments with the apple by planting seeds of any stock. There will be abundant opportunity for selection among the seedlings. Mr. Burbank has experimented very extensively with this fruit, and some of the results of his experiments are shown in succeeding pictures. The present picture shows one of the most beautiful seedlings, but one which, unfortunately, has certain defects that have prevented its introduction.
