Beauty Plum Fruits

This is still another of Mr. Burbank's four best plums, and like the ones previously shown it is of comparatively recent origin and of very complex heredity. The Beauty is noted for the even ripening of the individual fruit; this insures good keeping quality, for a fruit that ripens unevenly starts to decay first at the point of ripening. The Beauty is also admirable in flavor.
