Mr. Burbank's Improved Loquats

The loquat is a fruit that has become popular only in comparatively recent years. In its unimproved varieties, it is not very attractive, as the stone occupies a large part of the fruit, the pulp being not only relatively primitive in quantity, but of no very great degree of succulence. Mr. Burbank has greatly increased the size of the fruit, and has also increased the relative size of the pulp, although the stone still is larger than might be wished. The loquat Is still in active training, under Mr. Burbank's guidance, at Sebastopol.
