It is a minimal plic, with most of the anthocyanin removed. As both
parents have anthocyanin, it is most likely a recessive reduction of
anthocyanin. Loking at patentage, both sides have white parents in
background. So most likely what has been refered to as recessive white.
But calling it a recessive white is incorrect as this gene removes
anthocyanin, not carotene and anthocyanin.
Definatly not a glaciata, which would be the only other choice. Another
example of this is Laced Cotton. A white with some anthocyanin deep in
thoat, but breedsa s a plicata, but isn't a glaciata.

I like this one. Probably too early to be reliable here, but
rich chocolate a third of the way up the buds & the chocolate
in the throat on the falls.
>From plicata parents - what in the world??
