All the MTBs that I grow, both diploid and tetraploid, appear dainty and
refined to me, not only as contrasted with TBs, but also in comparison with
other median classes, such as IBs and BBs. That said, I do think APRICOT
DROPS (Aitken, 1995) is a tet MTB that is particularly refined and gracile.
It is available from the hybridizer's Salmon Creek Gardens.
