Hello Francesca,

The cross was ASPECTS OF LOVE X DESERT MOONLIGHT.  You'd probably be 
better than me in determining what DM might carry in the way of aril 
genes, but most of the Rich intros are complicated and DM's pedigree 
is obscure in which ones were used.  I don't the pedigree for AOL but 
I would think it would be standard for a TB.  Even so, AOL is as 
suspect here as anything.  I've grown more TB X DM seedlings than with 
any other single parent.  DM definitely brings some specific things to 
the cross - by far more consistant than any other AB parent I've used 
in terms of what you can expect - but this has been the only one like 
this.  I am hoping it grows well in the new location, but I'll be 
really surprised if it suddenly turns into a large plant.  Maybe a bit 
larger, but not large.  It may never amount to anything at all. If it 
survives to next summer, the new location will provide some shade from 
the mid-day sun.
