AbstractVaccinium arboreum and Vaccinium darrowi both exhibited high self incompatibility in a greenhouse experiment. Southern highbush selections produced an average of 70 seeds per 100 pollinated flowers. Seedlings originating in fields of open pollinated V. darrowi and V. arboretum showed intermediary to the species and the southern highbush selections.
