Re: MED: MTB - Blue Chip Stock

<< I am not familiar with ECHO POND either.
 What is it?  Your new seedlings sound great. >>

Dear Cindy:

ECHO POND is a tet MTB introduced in 1984 by the late David Sindt.  It is a 
neglecta and height is listed at 18.5 in.  Cross is Annikins(IB) X Sdlg. 283: 
(Annikins x (Kiss Me Kate(IB) x ((Emma Cook(TB) x Dotted Swiss(TB)) x I. 
balkana))).  This type of cross would generally result in BBs, but selections 
were made of the daintiest cultivars and at least two from this cross were 
introduced.  They are on the large side for the stringent MTB characteristics 
and, from what I have heard, I suspect that BLUE CHIP STOCK may be a little 
large.  It is very difficult to breed tet MTBs that are small and dainty 
enough to fit the standards.  I hope that BLUE CHIP STOCK	 is in 
convention gardens so I can study it.
