Selecting Among Peach Seedlings

Here two peach seedlings are shown between which it may be somewhat difficult to decide. The one at the right is somewhat larger and sturdier, but that at the left is much better formed, its branches being upright, growing at the ideal angle of about forty-five degrees. The latter will therefore make better trees, but the one at the right has qualities of color of stem, and of sturdiness that may make its preservation desirable. Two quite different varieties of peach may be expected from these two seedlings of the same stock.
