The Conquest and Its Parents

In the background are four Conquest prunes; in the foreground is a cluster of small partially stoneless French plums known as the Sans Noyau.

The contrast in size between ancestors and descendants is strikingly shown; yet the Conquest is by no means the largest of Mr. Burbank's plums.
