Luther Burbank was one if North America's foremost American plant breeders. Our collection, Luther Burbank: His Methods and Discoveries, contains documents of his methods and discoveries. The 12–volume monographic series is prepared from his original field notes covering more than 100,000 experiments made during forty years devoted to plant improvement.
He experimented with thousands of plant varieties and developed many new ones, including new varieties of prunes, plums, raspberries, blackberries, apples, peaches, and nectarines. Besides the Burbank potato, he produced new tomato, corn, squash, pea, and asparagus forms; spineless cactus useful in cattle feeding; and many new flowers, especially lilies and the famous Shasta daisy.
Take a look at the collection, you might be surprised by the plants he created.
