A Basket of Plums
These plums are typical of bushels that might be picked during the bearing season on Mr. burbank'sproving grounds at Sebastopol, consisting of specimens no two of which are prexisely alike and no oneof which is identical with any variety hitherto known. Mr. Burbank has introduced more than 60 new varieties of plums; but he has produced or developed thousands of varieties from which to select. The bulk of these are, of course, of use only for further breeding experiments;but there are many varieties still unnamed that merit introduction, and new varieties appear each year.
