Jack-b-little/Delicata Hybridizing

brewguy85(5b)June 20, 2010

I was wondering if anyone has ever tried crossbreeding Delicata and Jack-B-Little before and what the possible outcome might be?

Have no idea what shape or color you will get, but they are both C.pepo and will cross readily. They will not be any larger than a delicata.

I'm sort of hoping to get something similar to the sweet lightning variety. which would be a a mini-pumpkin with improved flavor and/or altered coloration.

They're planted within 3 feet of each other so I'm pretty confident they're going to cross naturally, but I have done some hand pollination to make sure.
