  • Court Estate Gold x Sugar Magnolia

    I made this cross also in the hope for a red mangetout or red snap. Last year the F1 which should have been all purple, wasn't, but it was green with purple blotches. Did the loss of purple genes strike again? Well seeing this blotchy F1 I back crossed it to Sugar Magnolia and I am growing the F1 of this cross this year. Well it is dark purple, not blotchy in the F1. Having back crossed to purple, I expect it may be more difficult for the yellow recessives to show themselves in future generations. We will see. So far I am very pleased with this colour on the F1. see photo.
