Anyone grown seeds from Bayse's Purple?

I would sure be interested to learn if anyone has grown seedlings from Bayse’s Purple. Until yesterday I didn’t even know it set hips. I got several from a friend and plan to try them. These were aparently frozen on the bush a few nights, so I don’t know if they’ll germinate, but I’ve had enough success in the past with a few hips that had frozen on the bush that I’m somewhat hopeful that they may give a few seedlings.

Any thoughts?

Hi Randy, I do know that it produces viable pollen but I have never heard of anyone sowing the hips. It’s certainly worth a shot. It’s a fascinating variety.
