    Hi,

    recently did a cross between xcoccinea X mirabilis 'red'
    All went well fortunately and now the fruits are quite ripe. It took the fruit 6-7weeks to ripen the last time I crossed this with gracilis, now is the 6th week of this xcoccinea cross, so need more experienced breeders to help me . I really dont want the bottom few pods to split before I rush the TC, (which happened last time) because I noticed the older fruits at the bottom are usually the most vigorous growers...

    heres the pic, seams have appeared, but it still looks rather green right?

    and heres a cool pic, with the upper few flowers of inflorescence pollinated with coccinea and lower half with xmiranda. I was told miranda was infertile...I still went ahead with the cross, just for curiosity sake...

    (pic taken last week)

    That doesn't look ripe to me. I wait until they turn brown, but perhaps I am waiting too long?
