RE: Re: HYB: self incompatibility: Balloon Pods

Hello, Anner,
No, I haven't done any scientific experiments about this.  It's just from
casual observation.  I have had several favorite irises for years that I
have never been able to set pods on.  I have noticed that they never have
either bee pods or balloon pods, always nice clean stalks.  On the other
hand, my most fertile pod parents also have the most balloon pods.
Therefore when I see one of my seedlings is producing balloon pods, I have
never had trouble setting good seed pods on it myself.  I have come to use
that as a marker for an easy parent; I don't say a good parent.  The kids
may be terrible.

Francelle, hello.

I'm not doubting you here, but I would like to ask whether this  is but an
intuition you have had, or an intuition you have actually  confirmed.

Incidentally, to judge by the photos you have added to the photo list,  you
are making some fine looking irises.

Has anyone ever seen any sort of pod on Quaker Lady?
