Editors often have to comment on the difference between a drawing of a new fruit, and the fruit itself when it comes before them. Before us just now is a drawing of Wilson Junior Blackberry, and real fruit of the same from Wm. Parry, and it is pleasant to record that the immense size is not in the least exaggerated. They were 1 1/2 inches long, 4 1/2 inches around lengthwise, and 3 3/4 round crosswise. Five of the berries weighed 2 oz. They are from one acre, which commenced ripening the latter part of June and yielded 110 1/2 bushels, by side of five acres of Wilson Early, in equally good condition, which yielded but 53 bushels per acre.
