Plant of the Alligator Pear
Mr. Burbank is now experimenting actively with the development of the alligator pear. The specimen here shown is a seedling which has withstood the rigors of one of the coldest California winters, suggesting that the plant may become hardy as far north as Santa Rosa. There is promise of marked improvement in this intereatng fruit.
