    Default heritage of Blc Golden Chieftan

    Just opened for me and I'm curious about it. Is there some place online I can plug it in and get the ancestry tree? I think I found that it's a cross between chocolate drop and blc golden delicious, which I find very odd since I see nothing at all of the color from chocolate drop. I'm wondering if it has c luteola in its background. Looks a lot like it. Does yellow color tend to dominate?

    I'll post a picture of it in a few days so that all the flowers are fully open.

    The yellow comes from L. flava and C. dowiana.

    My program won't let me copy the family tree. It's quite complex on the Blc Golden Delicious side.

    Amey, thanks so much!! It's interesting to see the same species popping up so often in the background! I wonder if the greenish cast to the flowers when they first open comes from the digbyana. I'm expecting the color to change to a warmer yellow as the flowers mature, since that's what the pictures I've seen show.

    The color is more from forbesii than from dowiana or flava. forbesii is what oercomes the intense color of Chocolate Drop, though Chocolate Drop and other similar bifoliate hybrids will produce 1/4 to 1/2 yellow offspring when used as the pollen parent and crossed with a yellow.
