Beginning a new season -
I got one cross of LA1777 to take. There is a a good deal of heterosis evident in the seedlings as you might expect.
LA1777 (chilling, stress, resistance to late blight) might make a good cold-tolerant rootstock as well, so I plan to do some grafting this weekend.
Another blight resistant accession I was really impressed with, and which crosses easily, was LA 1269(Ph-3). It showed similar cold tolerance, going down to 28F, unprotected open field, with no damage. Humidity, of course, was very low.
