Hi Vicki,
Sorry this is so late. Yes, this one is mixed
chromosome. The other parent was an SDB sized seedling
that resulted from a TB X SDB cross. M0014 is proving
to be totally sterile. I have tried crossing it back
and forth to other things and so far no pods. I've
learned from my tetraploid crosses that sizes really
vary a lot. It seems getting plants of smaller stature
is much tougher than I originally thought. Thanks for
the encouragement.
