All the same cross.  The choices for pollen parent would be YAQUINA 
BLUE, NAVAJO JEWEL and, of course, whatever a bee might have selected 
to contaminate the cross.  I used pollen from both the others on the 
bloom.  I think it's YAQUINA BLUE because I don't think I'd have 
gotten all those ruffles from NJ.  Also, I think I'd have gotten more 
lighter blues than the cross produced.  So I refer to them as 
my 'Schreiner Blues'.  Therein lies one problem.  A bit cheeky to 
assume mine are even as good as what Schreiner puts out.  I can't 
attest to the fertility because I haven't tried to get pods with any 
serious effort.  There haven't been any beepods.
