Sorry to hear you didn't get lucky this time with
Pink Pele, but you won' t deter my determination...
As Keith Keppel said in his 2006 catalogue :"(...
but for those of us with a gambling addiction, what better pastime for playing
Have a look at this link about the odds at Lottery:
and you will see that, even with Pink Pele, my chances are far more better
than the lottery odds :
If one person purchases 50 Lotto tickets each week, they
will win the jackpot about once every 5,000 years. "
Thanks for the tip about Pink Pele's pollen being
It will broaden the field of research...
I still can't get over the colour of it's beard that scream to me across

Pele X TB
Yeah, 'Pink Pele' is fertile as a pod parent AND as a pollen
And that is the best I can say about it.
Of 10 seedlings germinating from a self cross, 8 were TBs... and they
weren't just dogs, they were hounds! They put me off yellows for ten
years... and the end of the 10th year is in 2009.
Of the two remaining, both were IBs with nice colour, but they took
forever to increase. I actually still have one that increases just
enough to stay alive.
Good luck with the crosses though.
