HYB: International Seed Exchange ???

If you're willing and able to freeze pollen, there's no need for simultaneous
bloom
to make the cross.  I've had takes from pollen frozen 4 years earlier.  My
problem
is lack of pod fertility in this climate, and lag time (in years!) for plants
to acclimate
before showing fertility.

Lots of potential pitfalls with a seed exchange, but still should probably by
trialed.
In particular it would be a great way for ageing master hybridizers to extend
their
expertise a few more years.
