I found this thread quite interesting, especially since I grow/breed/trade multifloras. (or should it be apostrophe?) But why the abrupt end?

I'm growing 3 or 4 this year, if I ever get them in the ground, some already mentioned, like Geranium Kiss, Rose Quartz MF, and some yellow ones. Some of mine are SuperMultiFloraLiscious, Nipples, Peachy Pear, and some I'm still working on.

SMFL is the largest so far (on a 9-inch plate.)

Also, many years ago, I ordered "Good Old Fashioned Red" from Chuck Wyatt and was surprised at what I got; instead of a large red, I got ribbed fruits in large clusters which I believe were MF. I don't think I have any pics of the clusters but here's one pic of the fruits. They reminded me of Santorini. I don't know if I still have seeds, plus I don't recall if I saved any because I was disappointed it wasn't what it should've been... if I can find the original seeds and they are about 15 yrs old or less, I may be able to germinate them, as that's about where my results teeter-totter (15-16 years.)

Nipples, the last 2 pics, has L. Cheesmanii as a parent.
