A Basket of Peppers
Like most other products of the garden, the pepper has come under Mr. Burbank's careful scrutiny, and has felt the benefit of his guiding hand. The large and handsome specimens here shown have been developed in the course of a few generations of selective breeding, without hybridization. Similar results will attend the efforts of any one who will go about the work of improving the pepper with enthusiasm and zeal, using the ordinary garden variety. The plant deserves to be cultivated much more generally than it is.
