going to attempt plum x cherry hybrid
« on: May 06, 2019, 01:55:53 PM »
I'm going to attempt to cross Green Gage plum (6n) with Sweet Cherry (2n), which should result in a 4n chromosome offspring.
 Then cross that with sour cherry (4n), in this case Juliet in the Romance series of cherry hybrids.

Here's a Juliet (Romance series cherry) branch that was just grafted onto Yoshino flowering cherry:



The Romance series cherries have basically 25% P. fruticosa ancestry, putting them in a separate but closely related family to sour cherry.
