A New Fruit.
The invention of brand-new fruits and
vegetables is the principal work to be
done in the Laboratory of Plant Breed
ing, just now organized under the De
partment of Agriculture, Dr. Herbert
Webber, who lias been put in charge,
has succeeded ill creating several dis
tinct novelties in the vegetable king
dom while in collaboration with Walter
T. Swing if.
A kid-glove grape fruit is a novelty
just turned tun by the^e gent lemeiii
Hitherto the crape fruit has be" 11 a
troublesome delieicv th > h in He •» vin^
to the stubborn resistance of it-, pulp,
which has refused to be quartered, like
the orange. Yet it has become the
breakfast fruit of those who under
stand that it contains an alkaio'd in
gredient similar to quinine in tonic ef
fect. Dr. Webber and Mr. Swingle
tried their luck at crossing the kid
glove orange, or tangerine, obtains its
name from the fact that when its luose,
delicate skin is removed, it falls into
quarters nature lly ami can be eaten
with hands ci;id in the must delicate
and immaculate ••! gloves. One of the
hybrids result ing from this unique al
liance has just given fruit, the off
spring being ab nit the size of an or
dinary orange. Il has the easily-re
movable ski 11 iind bright orange-yellow
flash of the tangerine, and its seg
ments fall apart quite as readily as do
those of the latter. It h.is the slightly
modified bitter acid flavor of the grape
fruit, but not so bitter.
"Tanirelo" is the name given to the
new species. It was derived from the
two words, "tangerine" and "pomelo"
. which latter is the true name of the
grape fruit. The grape fruit was used
as the mother parent, the tangerine as
the father. Hut the "tangelo" — the
offspring of this odd experiment in
plant matrimony— is neither a tanger
ine nor a pomelo.
It is a distinct and new species — quite
as distinct I rum either parent as is the
A fortune, no doubt, awaits the tirst
grawer who will learn to cultivate the
taug"elo on a lrge scale. It will thrive
wherever the orange or grapefruit will.
Because of its greater convenience, it
will probably will replace the grape
fruit to a large extent, although the
latter is largely in demand at present,
"both for hospital and general use.
