Raspberry Swirl has some nice offspring. I haven't been successful in getting it to work either way yet. Good luck. Smiling

What are your goals with this most recent cross, Arilbred? They appear quite similar. Do they have qualities you wish to enhance or diminish?
I'm always interested in how these decisions are made, For me, it has a lot to do with what's blooming at the same time! Do you save pollen? I need some instruction in how to do that.
Several crossings started 2 years ago are ready to bloom. That's a thrill I'm looking forward to !
Good luck with your crosses!
