Create my own interspecific cross
« on: 2021-10-09, 09:31:13 AM »
After my experience with tetsukabuto, i will create my own interspecific cross between cucurbita maxima and moschata.
I have choose a buternut or i have put pollen of the variety delica (sweet mama x blue kuri)(green and blue).
I hope this cross will be a sucess!
Choose a hybrid of cucurbita maxima increase for me the probability to have viables seeds!
Tetsukabuto is an hybrid between green delicious (green) and futsu kurokawa.

I have harvested the seeds of the two butternuts crossed with delica f1.
Do you think it possible to have an interspecific cross maxima x moschata male fertile if the parent is a  maxima  f1?

Tetsukabuto F1 would seen to indicate pollen sterility for F1 interspecies squash. However that may be insufficient data.
Western Montana garden, glacial lake Missoula sediment lacustrian parent material and shallow 7" silty clay loam mollisoil topsoil sometimes with added sand in places. Zone 6A with 100 to 130 frost free days
