I agree -- I'm also impressed with this cross.  I'd just like to add that 
I've obtained some nice pinkish ABs from the EQ line and even some with 
lycopene.  ROSEMOHR was an 1/8th-bred in the quantum system, but in modern 
terms it appears to perform like a 1/4-bred. 

If I'm right, some of Donald's seedlings could be fully fertile -- and  ANY 
that show evidence of fertility should be used!  In my own seedling patch, I 
examine flowers with a magnifying glass to assess pigmentation and have often 
used the alcohol test to confirm my initial assessment.  Just looking at the 
pictures, though, it seems that he may well be on the verge of getting the 
long-sought tangerine or coral arilbred.

It may take an outcross to get a signal, but that's fairly easy.
