Yes, this would explain the appearance of the seedling.  I did 
(knowing it could possibly not be the case) consider ASI got it 
right and that I was most likely working with a TB.  The aneuploid 
factor I don't understand, but was also in my mind.

It does not explain the full pods and good germination.  OB- types 
have done neither for me.  TB X AB often give full pods, but with 
poor germination.  That is for me, of course.  So, I still am 
wondering about my results.  Overall I wouldn't have expected what 
has happened.  The explanations I can come up with for one facet 
contradict the other.

I try maiden bloom.  Sometimes I get takes (only via pods BTW).  Not 
often, but then I often can't get repeat crosses on plants I've had 
prior success.  I think my climate conditions are always going to 
place limits on my efforts to evaluate fertility of a plant.  I've 
had terrible success with ESTHER, THE QUEEN e.g.  Only these pods 
and a seedling have ever set seeds with the pollen, never a pod.  I 
think the track record of EQ probably says a lot about my 
conditions.  Everything needs to be right, and they usually aren't.
