This is great news Anita!
seems like 'Tyke', who works with diploids also works with tetraploids!
Lynda Miller got 'Survivor' out of 'Bangles' X 'Tyke',
David Shannon got 'Alyoska K' out of 'Bumblebee Deelite' X 'Tyke',
this later cross also gave 'Ob Stackles' to James Loveland, who also got 'Tow Headed Tyke' out of 'Tyke' X 'Pretty Quirky',
and finally, you manage to get a stunner, crossing it with the tetra 'Bordeaux Pearl' = 'Chanted' X 'Chubby Cheeks'
PS: tell us if it is fertile as soon as you know!
