South American Cherries
Much of Mr. Burbank's success has been due, as the reader is aware, to the hybridizing of plants brought from different geographical localities. This picture shows a South American cherry that has been used in the course of the crossbreeding and hybridizing experiments through which Mr. Burbank's many varieties of perfected cherries have been developed. It will be seen that the South American cherry differs quite widely in appearance as well as in the foliage from the ordinary cherry of the northern hemisphere.
