Hi Kevin,

I saw the Carmine Jewel fruit lined up beside the Evans, and I couldn't 
notice a difference in size.  It's hard to say for sure if the hardiness 
would be carried via seed, but there is a good chance.  The problem with new 
cultivars is not all things can be studied to a degree where we are 
confident in making a comment.  For example, we have seen that they are 
fairly drought tolerant, but this was noticed only on 1 location.

I would be very interested in talking to Scott about the work Dr. Hansen 
did.  Is there any way I can contact him?

Wayne Fuhr, a Nafex member in Edmonton has had success growing pear on 
Amelanchier.

Prairie gold and sunrise are apricots released by a nursery in Saskatoon, 
which I believe was bred by the Coutts family in Unity, SK.  From what I 
understand it is part Siberian apricot, which would mean smaller fruit, and 
smaller size tree, and very hardy.

Golden spice pear was released out of Minnesota, I believe.
