HYB: Aril Questions

From: Sharon McAllister <73372.1745@compuserve.com>

arils?   Quarterbred as pod parent or pollen parent?

And what about when crossing tet TBs with tet arils?  Does it seem to make
a difference which one is the pod parent or pollen parent?

...so many questions!  :)

I normally use the quarterbred as the pod parent, mostly because of the
relative bloom time. I'd expect results to be similar to those of the TB x
tet aril crosses, but haven't accumulated enough supportive data to give
you a definitive answer on that one.  

I've been crossing TBs & BBs with tet arils for almost 25 years.  So far,
NOTHING worth introducing from a cross with the TB or BB as pod parent --
although there are still some unbloomed seedlings.  The TB onto tet aril
cross is harder to make, but has been more successful for me.
