Robin - both should be early striped grapes - purple w/ green stripes. I expect 3C8 to have much darker flesh.

Sounds interesting! Will be curious to hear the results of these growouts. Thanks for sharing!

Mark, the seeds arrived today, thank you for this opportunity. How embarrassing for our postal system, almost a week later than overseas to Finland and Wales! I look forward to growing these out; and since I have the same ones as Jayc and Robin, it will be interesting to note the difference in our different climates.

Mark, I got the seeds last week, thanks!

3C54 -
3C40 -
3C45 - orange plum/saladette.
3C6

Can you let me know what you're expecting from ones that don't have a description listed? What would help you as far as record keeping?

Mark/all - these are new F1's from parents that have unique combinations of traits. These predicted phenotypes are my best guesses - but I've been surprized before, and especially when using GWR/bicolor parents - which is the case for several of these.

I received and planted:
all three seeds of 3C3;
all four seeds of 3C45 and
all four seeds of 3C54
on February 16.

The first (3C54) popped up yesterday (10 days - no heat). Today the score is:
3C3 = 1/3 = 33.3%
3C45 = 1/4 = 25%
3C54 = 2/4 = 50%.

More are likely.

Planted both varieties two weeks ago, and the results so far:
3C3: one seedling (looks healthy and vigorous)
3C54: none germinated

Of the 4 varieties I received I have 3-4 plants of all but 3C40, that one I only got two that germinated. I *think* that one I only received 3 seeds for, so overall germination was very good for me.

3C3 - 1 out 4 up
3C45 - 2 out 3 up -- I'm concerned they may both have 'helmet' head.

3C45 total three seedlings, strongest one planted, but not robust.
3C54 total three seedlings, strongest one planted, but not robust.

I have all of these planted here (MN) this summer. In general vegetative vigor and plant health look very good - certainly signs of hybrid vigor in plant growth. The first of these are now flowering.

Hi Mark,

Here's some info on the hybrids. I had 100% germination on 3C3, 3C6, and 3C57. All the plants are very healthy, RL, about 5 to 6 inches tall and were planted in the garden last Fri. No blooms as yet but they look great.

Default Your Hybrid's status thus far

All your hybrids were planted the first week of June and are approximately 2 feet tall at the end of June.
All 3 plants appear to be very vigorous and healthy.

I have one plant of 3C3:

This is its fruit (it appears to be a plum, any striping does not appear to be prominent:

I have two plants of 3C45:

Plant 3C45-1:
