Do you mean the last paragraph of the Flower and Garden article or the last
paragraph of the Special Publication article on pg. 38?
I'm sorry Rick, I meant to ask whether the F2 generation (such as a selfing
of Little Calliet) been successful in producing viable offspring which in
turn are fertile. The 1995 article to which I originally referred
indicates that selfing produced two pods with no seed, but six seeds
resulted when it was used as a pollen parent crossed back to SAUTERNE,
which I assume is a tet. LI.
Does the Flower and Garden article tell the end of this story?
