Dear Jerry;
	I think the parentage has been tossed around a bit. And I may 
have been making up 'bucharica'. Now that I think about it, it 
doesn't seem likely.
	But the blue cold certainly come from aucheri alone.
	Jane suggested I persica is not a parent.

	I haven't grown galatica. Does it seem likely?
