Sunberries

This is in some respects one of the most remarkable,and unquestionably the most maligned, of fruits. It resulted from a hybridization of two Solanums effected after years of unsuccessful efforts. It was named Sunberry by Mr. Burbank, but was subsequently re-christened the Wonderberry, quite against his will, by the dealer who purchased and introduced it. It has been fiercely assailed, largely because it was confounded with quite a different species of Solanum; notwithstanding which it has made its way in the fruit-garden, and is destined to be much more popular in the future than it has been hitherto.
