Corrections to Conard-Pyle article in Summer Newsletter

My apologies for these slip-ups:

Knock Out was officially released in 2000, not 1999.

Jacques Ferare said that Hybrid Teas were most popular in the West, not the South and West. (I think I might have written Southwest and West, and misread my note.)

Meilland sends Conard-Pyle 400 to 500 new varieties each year for evaluation, not 40-50. That’s a big difference and just goes to prove what a big job Mr. Ferare and his company have in evaluating new varieties for marketing.


I mean 300 to 400 varieties. This is evidently not my day.
