Hi Patricia,

     I don't know about the Keppel IB's, but Lo Ho Silver has been most
reluctant to cross with.  I have only managed to get a handful of pods on Lo
Ho Silver in many attempts.  What pods I have gotten have had very low seed
counts and the germination has been poor.  Having said that, there is a
difference between low fertility and infertility and Lo Ho Silver while
difficult does have some fertility.  Work with Lo Ho might be slow, but
still worthwhile so don't be discouraged if you feel you would like to work
with it.  Good luck to you.
