OK all this discussion about crossing the CC. with the black diamond. Well that is what I have been doing now for two years. This is what you get when the cross is successful. Can't wait to grow it. This is my 132 BD. cross that got no attention. The deer ate the plant off but I let it grow back and I didn't pollinate till Aug. This is the 165 Bright X 251 Kent cross X the 350.5 Kent . The 350 throws white seeds and BD throws black so you get seeds like I have never seen before.
