Cut back to 44 plants this year. Pollinated the first one - 1604 Robinson with 666 Gansert. I have not pollinated this early in quite a few years. Pictures to follow.

As of this morning I have 91 pollinations - some took but because of a week in the 90ís, I am sure some did not. I am all about orange and this one should be a beauty. Pollinated on 6/27 it is a 550 Swain X 666 Gansert cross.

Most of my 43 plants are pollinated, with the heat last week a number aborted. I have some great crosses I am anxious to plant next year. 877 Swain (677 Wolfx1501 Wagner) crossed with 1780 Wagner day 19

767 Swain (291 Housex801 Swain) crossed with 525 Wolf. This one is growing like a weed. I have had some great pollinators from additional growers such as Schweigert, Seelow, Stelts, Rea, Harnica, Young, Robinson, Haist. This could be a great year.

I rarely push them to hard to crack them but did this time to the 666 Gansert. Hopefully there are some viable seeds since it was crossed with 1501 Wagner
