Abstract

Several years ago there was brought to me a quince, Pyrus cydonia, containing much more than the usual number of seeds. The genus Pyrus has from two to five ovaries and in each ovary are two ovules. Bailey in the revised edition of “Gray's Field, Forest and Garden Botany" states that the five cells are normally many seeded. In the case under consideration the fruit had a perfectly normal appearance of five cells and over one hundred seeds. They are shown in the accompanying illustrations.
