Dear Michael Pascall,

Concerning the seed set of T. chantrieri it would be of interest, if you grow a population of different genotypes or if you really get seedset after self pollination. The latter would, of course, speak against selfincompatibility and pro the male sterile status of the clone offered over here in Germany.
