The Ideal Pear
This is the pear which represents the culmination of Mr. Burbank's many years of experiment with this fruit. It will be seen that the best qualities of the seedlings shown in the earlier illustrations have been combined to produce a pear that is of ideal shape, large in size, and beautifully colored. When we add that the flesh of this pear is of corresponding quality, It will be plain that the fruit Justifies the name of "The Test," under which it was introduced.
