As Immortality has the "I" it will reduce anthocyanin in half of its
seedlings when crossed to a blue or purple (assuming one dosae of "I")
Not a dilution efect per say. Colours depends on what genes show up in
what seedling. Blue is anthocyanin pus inhibitor of yellow (a
recessive gene) . If the Ae gene that changes blue to dark purple is
not in mix, then blue. Not a dilution.

IMMORTALITY itself can produce dark seedlings. IMM X DUSKY GRAPE
produced mostly very dark purple seedlings, an ugly red neglecta, and a
IMM X WHO'S YOUR DADDY produced few surviving seedlings, all pale blue.
So there seems to be some dilution possible with IMM - not entirely
Wish the darn things were fertile here! Dead end so far.
