Mr. Charles A. Green says: "You ask for suggestions relating to the protection of originators of new fruits. The Niagara Grape Co. has solved the question, having shown one way to secure protection which has proved successful as they practice it. But why not patent the new fruit, much as other affairs are patented? Then individuals would be granted rights to grow only, others to grow and propagate; all restricted by the originator. It would cause inconvenience and annoyance perhaps, but it would not be compulsory on any one to be thus inconvenienced, and the prime object would be attained. Prof. Beal can distinguish varieties by the blossoms in many cases".
