Merry christmas and happy new year to you!The winter is quiet and globaly sweet.we will have the year the most hot since 1900 ago with a med of 14°C in france. Those seeds will may poorly formed. They risq to have a slow germination.
i think at an experience: for this season i will put in the same square my tree tetqukabutos hybrids. At left, tetsukabuto x n maxima: female allele:2/8 green delicious and 2/8 futsu kurokawa, male allele: 4/8 n maxima at midle tetsukabuto 1/2 green delicious male allele 1/2 futsu kurokawa female allele at right tetsukabuto x n moschata: female allele:2/8 green delicious and 2/8 futsu kurokawa, male allele: 4/8 n moschata
The tetsukabuto will have the two alleles with maxima and moschata Mother allele 2/8 futsu kurokawa and 2/8 green delicious
male allele 1/8 futsu kurokawa and 1/8 green delicious and 2/8 n maxima or n moschata
The hybrids tetsukabuto x n moschata or n maxima will have female allele:1/8 futsu kurokawa and 1/8 green delicious and 2/8 n maxima or n moschata male allele:1/8 futsu kurokawa and 1/8 green delicious and 2/8 n maxima or n moschata
i read this and my brain hurts, but i hope you enjoy the results. my own system here is way too complex for me to keep track of all the parents and possible crosses. short of genetic sequencing of every bean i grow it's just impossible for me to know for sure what is going on. i can just herd things in the directions i wish to go and hope for the improvement as time goes on. as i become smarter about selecting and plantings the trend is positive.
Second fruit opened ,i have found 13 seeds for a fruit appeard mid july and harvested mid october.I think that the parent is maxima (red kuri) Its nornal that the seeds floating after to be exit of the fruit?
Ok i will try to sow a few seeds in a bottle that i have cutting for increase my germination lucks. The plastic of the bottle will did a little greenhouse effect and keeping more of humidity than a seedling in pot. For not broken the germs i have each seeds in a tea bag with coffee ground on.
The germ look like thin and sensitive, i have add a mulch for have a best humidity of potting soil and for moisten the shell of the seed for avoid that she stick at the cotyledons.I hope strengthen the germ!
I note that the seeds f2 of tetsukabuto are very long to germinate, the germ is exit but i don't see the cotyledons. If they arrived to germinate, i think that they will be of beautifuls plants! I have put my seeds under a growlight during 12h30 per day with a lightening of 4000k. My potting soil be lightely compacted by drying. The mulch was help to decompacted the potting soil. The temperatur is between 15°C 59°F the night and 21°C 69,8°F the day toward a window.It may too cold!
I have put of seeds of lentils and barley in a water pot. I have put one seed of tetsukabuto, one seed of tetsukabuto x violino rugosa and one seed of violino rugosa. I think that the auxin rejected during the germination of the lentils and the barley will help the germination of the seed tetsukabuto x violino rugosa
A seed of tetsukabuto x violino rugosa that i have put in greenhouse will germinate. I will see if she is able to germinate with the natural light.
Thr big problem that i have see with the firsts seeds is that the germ has of difficulties to stretch.I will try to watered with a solution rich in auxin.water and sugar and the seeds of lentils and barley in germination. I hope that an embryon rescue is not necessary

wilscase: Hello all. My name is Casey Wilson. I'
Oct 18, 2022 21:31:32 GMT -5
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.
Oct 18, 2022 21:38:52 GMT -5
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
