I making a few berry crosses, and well the first went poorly, two strawberries. The berry failed to form. The pollen may be incompatible? Raspberries went a little better. I crossed Cascade Gold with Josephine and the cross looks good. Only a few maybe 10? Drupes formed which indicates it’s a good cross. I kept other pollen out, and my hand pollinating numerous drupes one time, only got a few. I know I have a good cross though! Now to grow the seeds out once it ripens.
I did a few blackberry crosses too. Not doing much with berries. I’m drawn to stone fruit at the moment. having lost 3 peach seedlings I’m pissed and gonna get 3 more! Also I have some new (and old) pluots ripe and want to grow out seeds, Honey Punch, Nadia, Dapple Dandy, and others.
