    the laws of genetics say, if that when plants are crossed, 50 percent of their offspring will run right down the middle of the road, 25% will be extreme towards one parent, and 25% extreme to the other...

    Is it possible that we are looking at simply a Truncata X Vetchie that falls into the 25% that favors the Vetchie Parentage?

    hmm I disagree on the 25 25 50 deal for a pure primary hybrid.. IE one that is comprised of crossing one species with another. Example:
    Species A with genes AA
    Species B with genes BB

    100% of the offspring will be AB

    Taking however 2 plants of that hybrid and crossing them together gives something totally different:
    AB x AB gives 25% AA 25% BB and 50% AB
    YET the plant is still considered the same hybrid because it is a sibcross. Here is where you can have wider variation showing up in the offspring.

    Thanks but it's only standard genetics which applies to any plant/animal. There are other factors which complicates things but for the stand point of this conversation it suffices.
