<< Is it possible to make crosses between triploids?
   Narda, this is a good question.  Maybe Paul, NOrm, and others w/ more
 experience can comment on this; what are the results of crossing a
 tetraploid x diploid.......or what happens when using a tet for pollen
 parent?....sterile.....is that the end of the line ...or tet x tet??
   And make the response simple.....Thanks

Triploieds are sterile
Tetraploids can be sterile, fertile or in compatible both ways. 
Tetraploids X Diploids for the most part fail, but when they do work you get 
triploids.

The above are just generalizations that are true ALMOST all the time.
