There are some species of strawberry that are indigenous to Europe, but it is believed that the cultivated varieties did not attain real distinction until they were crossed with the species of South America, early in the 18th Century. having this in mind, Mr. Burbank has sent to South America for strawberries to use in hybridizing experiments. The one here shown, the Patagonian, has been extensively utilized.
