    You might, but there are an infinite number of unique genetic possibilities that could arise from any given cross.

    That's what I thought, I still might try if I ever get a b52. How do you grow the seeds?

    Sprinkle on the surface of moist media in warm and bright conditions, stratification isn't necessary to get very good germination. With fresh seed you should see germination within a few days.

    Sounds easy enough. Are they harder to take through dormancy for their first five years? Which I believe is the time it takes for them to become mature.

    This thread has good info on the topic. I've had seedlings survive overnight freezes down to 20F in the winter, but with mulch/snow protection.

    Agreed. Thanks for answering my seemingly infinite questions. I'm sure I have many more.
