I'm sorry to disappoint you Brock, but there might
be an explanation to this seedling : my
knowledge of genetics i null.
But I've been contacted off-line by a genetics
expert who explained to me that MTB X SDB crosses were absolutely possible, SDB
being 12-12-8-8, or 12-8-8-8, or 12-12-12-8 therefore would be compatible
with diplo 12-12 MDBs (still, like pumilas,some rare SDBs are tetraploid
8-8-8-8, but it's not the case of Hot, involved in the first
For the second cross, it would seem that a bee got
there first before i used High Master, TB being 12-12-12-12, which would
make them incompatible with12-12- MTBs.
Still, since there are still some MTBs in bloom now
in the garden, i will try to systematically pollinate the just-opened-ones with
TBs, just to test the theory.

Fling X High master
You may have found the need for an MMTB class. I
look forward to seeing
more from these
