Re: HYB: Multiple Pollinations

From: "Donald Eaves" <donald@eastland.net>

Hello Folks,

Now I'm a bit confused after Walter and Sharon seem to have
responded differently to the question.  To clarify what I was
thinking I should say I thought a different grain of pollen might
fertilize each chamber of the pod, there being three stigmatic
lips and three chambers in a pod.  Ergo a different pollen grain
from different pod parents per chamber perhaps.  I realized after
I posted that many people say it is only necessary to pollinate
one stigmatic lip and to get a full pod, so on thinking later decided
I might not have been thinking straight.  

In short, I guess I need someone to explain a bit of biology to me
here.  Birds and bees - that sort of thing.
