Hey Tony,
Except for the first picture, that is C. athiops, isn't it?

Yes it is.
I crossed the two plants you see in the images to get those fruits.
The C. peuvianus? sets fruit by itself. (self fertile)
But the C. athiops will not.

A hybrid? Are you going to sow any of the seeds to see what it turns into? It would be enlightening to see the byproduct of some C. peruvianus offspring. I suspect that many of the plants which I am always saying are "C. peruvianus" are in fact hybrids just like this.

I have little plants in the propagator already, I will shoot an image later on today.
I started them in the green house in august, they were slow to germinate and just sulked all summer in the heat so they are WAY behind in growth.
I will never start cactus seed in the summer in the greenhouse again. [-(

Great Tony! I guess in 5 years or so we'll start to get an idea anyway. :D

I'm curious for an update? Which fruit tasted better?
