Another View of the South American Peanut
The great range of variation shown by these South American peanuts suggests indefinite possibilities of improvement through selective breeding. Even in the first generation or two considerable improvement has been observed, and Mr. Burbank expects that marked development will occur in the course of a few succeeding generations. In his hands, the peanut seems likely to prove as tractable as the peas and beans.
