Bill Burleson commented" Mr. Pries, took me to task for stating on the species-group, albicans was "always" sterile."
I disliked what I had for form and color so much that I never tried to get a pod from it, but having a large numer of hives of honey bees present for the apples, there was never a lack of naturally pollinated blooms.  Anything with any fertility at all had occasional (at least) pods.  In more than two decades what we had that I thought was albicans never had a trace of a pod.
Either the bees thought it poison, or as ugly as sin, or else it was really, really sterile.  It just may not have been albicans.
