I have an important cross of Livin’ Easy and a rugosa hybrid-- and one hip not only rippened… but dried up.
I was very suprised. The other hips are turning orange, but I’m noticing that two are starting to get wrinkled, as if they’re already drying up.
Should I pick before anything happens?
And what do you think about these seeds? They all floated, and seeds from Livin’ Easy don’t float (which is nearly true for nearly all roses with the exception of species.)
This is important to me-- the pollen parent is a cross from Abe Darby x Basye’s Amphidiploid, and thus representing a different line from Basye’s Amphidiploid that isn’t from 77-361 or Kim’s hybrids such as Lynnie.
