	To clear all of this up the Durios named their interspecies cross
of tet. La X I. virginica LITTLE CAILLET for Marie Caillet.  I got this
information today in a telephone call to Marie Caillet of Little Elm, TX.
So, the French dictionaries can go back on the shelf!  FLOWER AND GARDEN
or the Durios misspelled Marie's last name.  Marie did not know who the
guilty party was.
