Phaseolus lunatus x polystachios
« on: 2020-06-04, 07:06:03 PM »
This is an allopolyploid cross originally done in Florida in the 70s.  Last year a friend sent me four seeds.  The mother was Fordhook lima.  Iím still evaluating it, not sure if itís hardy in the ground but itís definitely perennial. .  Itís worth trying to cross it back to either parent, especially if unreduced gametes can be formed.
