Crossed Plums

The picture shows some of the first crosses between the Burbank and the Satsuma. The various specimens here shown illustrate the variety of characteristics that come to the surface when different races are crossed. The bloom and crimson of the Satsuma and the orange of the Burbank are clearly in evidence. There is a wide enough range of variation as to size, flesh, stone, flavor, and sundry other characteristics to afford ample opportunity for selection.
