Plumcot Seedling Cluster

At first glance this direct color photograph print might be taken for a cluster of Japan plums, but the finely serrated apricot leaf shows it to be a plumcot. Perhaps the most striking characteristic of this particular variety is its abundant bearing; and this is a matter of great importance, as many of the apricots have been rather shy bearers, and Mr. Burbank is working with particular reference to improvement in this direction.
