Hi Donald, Sorry for the delay in responding but we have returned from a small hiatus with family and could't give your message a reply. I am attaching my pedigree version of your cross. Unfortunately I do not have much info on the Rich seedling crosses but I believe Jim Whitely does. He was one of the last people intimately associated with Jonnye Rich before her death, so she may have left him her list of seedling crosses. In which case it would be good for you to obtain any info he could supply to fill in your voids re her sdlgs. Please do not mention my name for private reasons. It is possible that if some of those onco genes were small, that maybe thru crossovers or whatever, your plant inherited the tendency to be on the smaller side. That would be a plus in my opinion.
On another subject, I have a copy of one of your photos which I had downloaded some time ago and one of them appears to be very promising, the lower left photo. The cross was out of Rose Mohr. I looked in the cklists and all I could find that would closely resemble her was Rosy Mohrn. It is a Vallette introduction. Do you think that would be the pod parent you mention as Rose Mohr? Regards,

Hello Francesca,

The cross was ASPECTS OF LOVE X DESERT MOONLIGHT. You'd probably be
better than me in determining what DM might carry in the way of aril
genes, but most of the Rich intros are complicated and DM's pedigree
is obscure in which ones were used. I don't the pedigree for AOL but
I would think it would be standard for a TB. Even so, AOL is as
suspect here as anything. I've grown more TB X DM seedlings than with
any other single parent. DM definitely brings some specific things to
the cross - by far more consistant than any other AB parent I've used
in terms of what you can expect - but this has been the only one like
this. I am hoping it grows well in the new location, but I'll be
really surprised if it suddenly turns into a large plant. Maybe a bit
larger, but not large. It may never amount to anything at all. If it
survives to next summer, the new location will provide some shade from
the mid-day sun.
