Re: HYB: question -width, Romantic Evening kids

"Somewhat wide"?   I can only talk about the seedlings from about 3 crosses
involving ROMANTIC EVENING, but there were a lot of them.  If you mean falls
touching or nearly touching at the haft (which means wider than RE's), such
falls predominated only in a cross with AURA LIGHT  as the pod parent.  AURA
LIGHT has very broad falls.  In the other crosses, which both involved a
CHAMPAGNE ELEGANCE x LADY FRIEND seedling as the pod parent,  falls about as
wide as RE's own were about 50%.  I'll post a few, one at a time, and you
can see whether they're what you consider wide.--  Griff
