More Misfit Pears
This picture shows seedlings of the same heritage that illustrate the extremes of form, somewhat as the preceding picture illustrated extremes of color. The figure at the right shows the ideal pear shape, upon which tradition has set its seal of approval. Mr. Burbank feels that the ideal pear should retain this shape, in deference to the taste of the public.
