Re: A. titanum at UC Berkeley's Botanical Garden

The 'baby daddy' for Titania was Trudy (my baby) that bloomed in 2005. The pollen was stored
in a DNA freezer on the Berkeley campus at -80 F until Titania bloomed in 2007. Several of
the larger fruits have been harvested and the seeds sprouted. Each fruit had from 1 to 3
seeds in it.

Dear George,

Thanks for sharing these remarkable photos with all of us.   It is amazing to see an infructesence of this rare species in cultivation surrounded by a ''security wall'' for its protection!  Jim Symon would be SO proud to see his ''grandkids'' (or "great-grandkids"?) developing, actually they look NEARLY ripe!
A question---does anyone know where the pollen was obtained to ''do the deed'' on this plant??   In other words, who is the ''baby daddy'' to these fruits!

The Best,

Julius
