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?
