 I guess it's the Monk in me:
But somewhere either in my English or math training:  I'd write this (Manchu Coffee x Capricornia) X ((Embassadora x Evening Echo) x Touch of Bronze).
Manchu Coffee x Capricornia) X {(Embassadora x Evening Echo) x Touch of Bronze}                                                            

(Manchu Coffee x Capricornia) X [(Embassadora x Evening Echo) x Touch of Bronze].
or in this case just leave off the brackets.
  • Leave the (Embassadora x Evening Echo) x Touch of Bronze because the equation already has the X to let you know you've changed sides to father here.
Because that would mean to me Embassadora and Evening Echo were crossed and the sib. of that was crossed w Touch of Bronze.
Am I thinking correctly???  Is this what happened
As w comp. I guess there 10 ways to do same thing.

Not sure I can explain it any better but think of it this way the first left ( and the last ) enclose the entire pollen parent half of the equation.  the second ( and the first ) enclose a sub equation.  In that manner there are two lefts(( and two rights)), the two rights are just separated.  It works the same way when writing formulas in excel <Grin>

 Yes, I'm understanding better.  Still don't understand why the 2 (( infront of Embassadora w no )) anywhere.  Seems like the (( should have an )) somewhere??? ????

Hi Linda,

In my very basic understanding, I've used ONLY FOOLIN' as an example.

(Manchu Coffee x Capricornia) X ((Embassadora x Evening Echo) x Touch of Bronze).

To me, this means that for Only Foolin', its parentage is a seedling resulting from a cross between Manchu Coffee and Capricornia which has then been crossed with a seedling that resulted from a cross between Embassadora by Evening Echo and Touch of Bronze.

Does this make any sense??? Do I understand correctly???
