Re: HYB:pollination

Can a bloom set an AIR pod and not be able to set a real pod?  Or does  it
just mean I've not tried hard enough?
I had an air pod last year on an IB seedling of mine. I have tried a couple of IB x TB crosses using this seedling in the past, which did not set seed. Like you, I'm now wondering whether the air pod might indicate some level of fertility.

Last year, I had quite a few air pods appear across the garden. I usually find that any bee pods which form contain seed, but this was the first year I'd had so many bee pods which were empty.
