   Syn: Fertile, Fruitful.

   Usage: Fertile implies the inherent power of production;
          fruitful, the act. The prairies of the West are
          fertile by nature, and are turned by cultivation into
          fruitful fields. The same distinction prevails when
          these words are used figuratively. A man of fertile
          genius has by nature great readiness of invention; one
          whose mind is fruitful has resources of thought and a
          readiness of application which enable him to think and
          act effectively.
          [1913 Webster]
