If the parent is a flowering plant, then the cutting should be, too. Of course, the conditions have to be favorable--my seed-grown edulis have flowered only sporadically, and never at the same time. :-( Although the same can be said for my vitifolia. My Lady Margaret, incarnata and various decalobas, on the other hand, flower constantly.

Note that not all edulis are self-fruitful. The flavicarpas do need another pollinator, and other edulis varieties set fruit more readily with a separate pollinator as well.

jblaschke,
What would be your idea of the best pollinator for the edulis? They said the plant is well-rooted.
Thanks again for your help,
Nicci
