From AIS Bulletin #205 April 1972, page 104, Introducing MELLACATA. MTB. 15" to 19". Another purple on the red side. This should help bring red into the tables. Both bloom with the intermediates; however, still are in bloom with the early tables, so can be crossed with them. Has no pollen but pods. H 19 (a mellita hybrid) X Furcata, 24 chr. $7.50. Frank Williams.
