Typical Loquats

Although the loquat produces this relatively enormous seed, there is a great variation in different specimens; and Mr. Burbank reports that he knows of one tree that generally bears fruit that is altogether seedless. Unfortunately this tree is extremely unproductive, but the fact that it exists is encouraging as suggesting that it will be possible to produce a race of seedless loquats of good quality, through crossbreeding and careful selection.
