Description

Excerpt from The Juvenile Instructor, Vol. 19: March, 1884 Again, we find the cocoa, the chestnut, and the walnut tree growing to a great hight, and on the summit of these trees there are fruits which may fall with impunity to the ground; their thick shells and the hard nature of the fruit itself, ren dering a fall perfectly harmless. The grape, which is trained by man against walls, is naturally a low plant, scarcely ascending many feet above the ground. Thus, in almost every case, we may decide upon the style of tree, its hight and nature of growth, if we are acquainted with its fruit - the soft delicate fruit being indicative of a small tree or shrub, the hard-shelled fruit of one of lofty pretensions. As almost a singular exception to this rule we may mention the mulberry tree, which, although it does not reach to a very great hight, is yet tall enough to cause considerable damage to the fruit which may fall. It is, however, a popular belief that the mulberry never thrives so well as when beneath it there is a grass plot, which would, in a great measure, prevent the fruit which fell from the branches from being spoiled. This is but one of the many instances of what may be termed Nature's Instructions. Another is the peculiar form of plants or shrubs, the shape of their leaves, and the direction of their branches according to the situation in which they grow.
