I'm game. I had the devil of a time setting pods on Francis of Assisi but now it will set pods. I tried for at least 2-3 years before it set it's first pod. Not a great pollen parent either for me.
I think I also finally succeeded in setting pods this year on Glittering Gown. Another one I've been trying for 3-4 years with no success. Mediocre pollen parent.
I'm inclined to think Malihini is pod sterile although I did try setting pods again this year. I've tried every late blooming tet pollen I have on it but nothing. Too soon to tell if it will be a bust this year also.
Gold Helmet seems to only want to set 1 or 2 pods per season. This has been consistent since I've had it. Doesn't matter which pollen is used (all pods harvested had different pollen parents). It's almost if it has a sweet spot right in the middle of blooming when it will set a couple of pods. Any time earlier or later and all pods abort.
It is true that some plants often produce little to no pollen/good pollen but have rare days when they do produce fluffy pollen. Little Red Warbler is like that for me. Haven't gotten any pods from it and so far it hasn't set pods with it's pollen but good pollen days are few and far between for me.
Those are the ones that I remember right off the top of my head. There are probably others once I look at my records. I use Alice Faye to test all tet pollen. It is so fertile I think another tet flower just needs to look at it and it will set a pod!
For dips I use either Butterscotch Ruffles ( extra early to mid bloomer) or Double Gardenia (midseason to late bloomer).
