It's with excitement and joy that we are announcing the birth of something special here at the scion exchange. Start passing the cigars around, its a website!! Yes, we have been talking about making this happen for some time and it is now a reality. It took a bit of hard work and long hours but we have a foundation of what we hope is to be an amazing place for like minded folks to connect, swap scionwood and talk fruit trees. There will continue to be some polishing of the website but we just couldn't hold back the excitement any more. Please check it out at scionexchange.us
Once the new website begins to start building momentum our plan is to phase out the Yahoo group and migrate all members to the website. We do plan on continuing to have a presence on Facebook but the meat and potatoes will be with the website. This is the start of a new chapter for the North American Scion Exchange!
With Gratitude, Little John, Andy R. & Andy H.

wilscase: I'm a graduate student at Oregon State and have been working with populations segrgating for different color genes such as the B gene in Cucurbita. I'm curious if anyone has experience with crosses in Cucurbita maxima between grey blue types and orange?

wilscase: I have been backcrossing to the grey parent for 4 generations and have finally selfed the heterozygotes (for the Bmax gene) the populations have segregated for diffuse bicolor (pink/blue, orange green), blue green, blue, green, pink (salmon) and orange
Oct 18, 2022 21:36:29 GMT -5
wilscase: The genes involved are Bmax and bl. I have observed that Bmax is incompletely dominant to wild type (green). I have read that bl is incompletely recessive to Bl(wild type). I'm curious if anyone else has observed the behavior of Bmax in a grey/blue type
Oct 18, 2022 21:38:28 GMT -5
wilscase: It appears that bl and Bmax are interacting to produce different shades of salmon and pink.

wilscase: I'm also interested in any other color genetics, especially the relationships between B and L genes. In the right background these genes can dramatically increase Carotenoids (vitamin A)

wilscase: I have lots of germplasm and would love to exchange anything that people are interested in
