I have VH and BR, but not NS. Before they disappeared under the snow again
they did not appear to be trying to maintain evergreen foliage. Among my
historics the ones that were staying green were CONQUISTADOR, and to a
lesser extent its grandchild GREAT LAKES. CONQ is, of course, the other
parent of PURISSIMA, and also works its way into WHOLE CLOTH's pedigree by
way of SHINING WATERS, which was the TB parent of PROGENITOR.

RICARDI, which was recorded as collected in Palestine, is considered to be
a variant of mesopotamica. AMAS was named for the site of its collection,
which is near the Black Sea coast of Turkey, which is the
opposite(northern) side of the country from where mesopotamica was

The TBs observed to have tendencies towards evergreen foliage seem to show
a lot of mesopotamica-cypriana-RICARDI in their ancestry. The tetraploid
ancestor of L A W is AMAS. Could be an indication here of some significant
genetic differences among the various Middle Eastern tetraploid "species".
