Karen, that is an awesome looking plant!

The fruit on my cross is around 70-90 gram (2,5 - 3 oz.).
Carolyn, I actually posted a picture earlier in this thread, but it is gone now (thanks, Postimage!). It is a picture from 2016 I think.
Here it is again:

The taste is very good. It is a cross between (Marianna's Peace x Black Cherry) x a unnamed multiflora selection.
Carolyn grew a F5 selection a few years ago, and I remember that she liked it too.

I am currently growing the F6 generation, And I am hoping to share F7 seeds for it next fall if I am happy with the results this year.
Actually, I could have released it years ago, but I was not quite happy with it so I went back to the F4 generation.

It seems to set well in hot weather. I am growing it in a greenhouse, and the temperatures have been very high this year (the warmest May ever recorded in Denmark).

Yes I did like that one, but remember that you told me not to share seeds with anyone, so I saved no seeds at all.

Just honoring your request.

S,I really do like, very much,the crosses you work with, even more I will say,than Danish chocolates. Well maybe better to say,ah,forget it.

The taste is so great on them. Did you get a good fruit set amount?

I wouldn't say it was huge, but if all of the blossoms produced fruit, I'd need a wheelbarrow to harvest them.
