Floyd has done some fascinating crosses, if only so many weren't adapted just to the hot, dry, frostless areas of California. I quit trying his stuff in Oregon years ago because everything I tried here either wouldn't set in our wet spring weather, or it just didn't develop decent flavor. I really think I'd have to grow his selections in a greenhouse here to get them up to the standard of what they do in California.
