<.....if there were more than a few seedlings from the cross.....you
would expect 3/4 of the seedlings from two pbf parents to themselves
show pbf.  Jeff Walters in northern Utah>

Unless (sez the Rot Queen) there is something else going on with the pbf
seeds/seedlings in Chuck's cross such that they have the unfortunate mix
of genes that makes them prone to death before they get big enough to
exhibit pbf.  Suppose 40 seeds = 30 with pbf, 10 without.  Suppose only
half germinate, with germination skewed for some reason towards non pbf
= 10 with, 10 without.  Suppose all the pbf die or are discarded = 10
non pbf from the cross.

Perhaps not likely, but I keep having to remind myself that 'kept plant'
results from crosses don't necessarily explain what's going on (
thinking of chasing pedigrees in the checklists) & keeping in mind that
Chuck Chapman is selecting for hardiness in his growing conditions.
