HIST: President Pilkington

The plot thickens.

On Feb. 15, Cindy Rivera sent a picture in to Iris Photos of a NOID 
that had strong PBF, which she received as Copper Lustre (but not).  
I said I had it too, and also wondered about it.  I was glad to see a 
photo of it, because now I know it probably has a name, and isn't 
just a volunteer from my yard.  On May 7 I wrote a note that I now 
have it again as 'President Pilkington', in the form of a plant that 
I purchased in 2002.  My purchased plant of "President Pilkington" 
was an exact match to the NOID, even made the same large fat fruits.

Well, just for laughs I ordered another 'President Pilkington' this 
year, from another source.  It has NO PBF!  OK, so now it's back to 
square one.  Does anyone know for sure if 'President Pilkington' has 
PBF.  Also the New Mexico Noid with PBF has brownish flowers, 
especially noticeable on the standards.  Most photos that I've seen 
of the 'Pres.' look very similar, but they do not seem to be so 
noticeably brownish.

Any ideas?
