    Sounding really positive

      The tall yellow is looking really good, with 6 little pods in pairs, four flowers and some buds too. The pods look strangely narrow which I actually kind of like, and I'm tentatively hopeful that they are the snap type but I still can't really tell properly.

        This could well be a snap pea. I found it hard to tell initially. And yellow snaps are likely to be smaller than greens for some reason.

        I'll have to look up linkage groups!

        Yes please, interested in what you find.

      Pretty sure today that they are snaps.

        Absolutely totally sure now that they are indeed snaps.

          Did you get a chance to look at linkage groups?

          Sorry, I didn't! I'll try to find some time later. I've been distracted by catching Pokemon.

        Lots of the F3 plants completely confused me by producing loads of pod fibre. Totally frustrating to find a great-looking and -tasting snap only to discover horrible fibre making them useless. I don’t know how that could happen with this cross as one parent is fibreless and the other only has partial fibre in mature pods, but oh well.

        I did find a few small fibreless snaps so we’ll see what those seeds produce in the F4. Some have wild type flowers and some white, which is fine with me!

        I can always make a second cross with this in future, either to Sugar Lord or a larger yellow snow (I have one from Golden Sweet x Purple Podded that looks very promising) to get a bigger yellow snap. Should be pretty easy.

          From my initial crosses that went into CEG I made similar observations. There was more fibre than I expected (but I didn't expect much at that time anyway). Quite weird seeing a yellow, short blunt ended fibrous pod. I didn't follow up any of these, just surprised that the cross between a mangetout and a semi mangetout can produce a classic shelling pea.

          I know, isn’t it weird! I have no idea how that can happen.
