Re: The preliminary results of the pollination of Helen's hybrid
Good to see your notes, but always remember these must be repeated to verify them. For example, it looks as though the ones whose stigmas you clipped off were at the bottom of the bunch which can behave very differently from the other fruits, often they can have apparently well developed ovaries but in reality they are still transitional flowers which will not turn into fruit anyways.
