Hello Pieter ,
                    I germinated a lot of seed of so called " Near White Robusta`s " and they were all Pigmented .
I am waiting to see how they flower .
I must emphasize that these are results from MY seeds . I hope you get some Unpigmented seedlings .
.
Regards,
              Lionel.

Hello Michael ,
                      These seeds came from plants collected on the South side of the uMtamvuna River on the old border between the Transkie and Kwa Zulu Natal . This is the info I got from the supplier of our offsets who wishes to remain anonymous .
Another Pure White Robusta we have  I believe came from the North side of that River .
We have reaped and sown seeds this year ... only 3 seeds x Hirao and they should show colour in a month or so .
Will keep you guys posted .
Regards,
             Lionel.
