I don't know? It may be covered, but since we all have trees and are not propagating. (any sport of Nadia is going on Nadia) If mine stays red, it's not covered, but the stem size is, in the patent, so the long stem may be covered by the patent.
I decided I'm not going to try and patent anything, I'm just too old, if I was you, i would highly consider it. But it needs to be a proven winner, it costs too much otherwise.Trade marking is a good alternative.
Brady those fruit look magnificent. Mine is rather beat up, the color is cool, and you know it does look different than mine.
