Re: HYB: Chromosome Counts

>>As the diploid example I gave shows, an unbalanced F1 isn't a stable
breeder.  In the case of CORDELIA, there were enough homologous chromosomes
to produce fertility.  Often, however, dipoids from wide crosses don't
exhibit enough fertility to be used as a base for developing a new line. <<

Sharon, you DO know how to make a cross sound irresistable!! :-)

This is exactly the type of test cross I'm looking to try since they seem to have enough physical traits in common. The added instability that would be expected if seedlings do result, would just be frosting on the cake.
