A Mammoth Cactus Fruit Specimen

Some fruits of this size grow to the number of from twenty to fifty on each slab, and it is easy to see that the aggregate production is enormous. In point of fact, the amount of fruit grown on a single acre of Mr. Burbank's new perfected spineless cactus, under favorable conditions, may amount in the aggregate to more than 100 tons in a season. In point of bulk, the crop of the cactus is without rival.
