Blossom of the Loquat
Mr. Burbank has found the loquat always perfectly self-fertile. But it is easy to cross, and no doubt improvement will come about through crossbreeding with varieties grown in different regions. In Mr. Burbank's experience the plant yields rather readily to efforts for its improvement. It is well worth the attention of any one living in a region where it can be grown-notably the Gulf states.
