The Giant Maritima

The Maritima, colloquially known as the Beech Plum, is an American wild species, growing abundantly along many of the Eastern seaboards. The wild plum is very small and so acrid as to be almost inedible unless cooked. Mr. Burbank has greatly increased the size and quality of the fruit by selection, and he has also used it in highly interesting crossbreeding experiments.
