I meant to get back to you about Arilbreds and the desirability of using
them instead of the Arils. I did not realize the Arils would be so
difficult to work with. I do have a few Arilbreds too. I would like to
leaarn more about using them in a breeding program. I am green as grass
in this matter. Are Arilbreds less finicky about dry summers or do the
Aril characteristics prevail?
Could you recommend some good reading material that would help me?
