Cactus Fruit Approaching Seedlessness

Many persons do not object to the seeds in the cactus fruit; others, however, find them distasteful. In order to meet all tastes, Mr.Burbank is now attempting to remove the seeds from some of the varieties of cactus fruit. The specimen here shown is appraching seedlessness, and it is probable that other varieties to be developed in the near future will be altogether seedless. The spineless and seedless cactus, retaining its succulence and flavor, will be a very meritorious fruit.
