 Please correct me someone if I am wrong but I was under the impression that the original 'Black Beauty' along with its sister seedling 'Damson' was a triploid.This being the case the cultivar would have had very limited success in a breeding program. Several years elapsed after its initial introduction to commerce before a tetraploid form was developed.
