Thanks Sharon.  I don't have enough data to be sure, of the trend, but
some of the seeds from a few pods from my seedlings have definitely had

few seedlings - now to go see if I can figure out why TEA LEAVES X PEACH
SPOT is nearly black in bud....not quite what I was hoping for....

And the first new IMMORTALITY seedling to show color is, big surprise,
white.  darn it all.
