Steve,

Yes, seedless grapes typically produce viable pollen.  Lon Rombough is the grape breeding expert & will likely address your other question on this list or you can contact him directly.

Are you thinking of developing some new seedless cultivars for the East?

>Do seedless grape cultivars produce pollen for crossing them with other cultivars?  Also, what are some cultivars of seedless grape that produce absolutely under-developed, inviable seed (not just most of the time: consistently).
