"After the seedlings are budded they are grown in nursery rows until orange or grapefruit trunks are from seven-eights to an inch and a half in diameter. Then the young trees are taken up. The rich soil is left in a ball around the roots and burlap is wrapped around the "ball" to preserve moisture and hold soil together. After "curing" as shown in this picture the trees are transplant to rows in the orchard."
