    Re: Yet another unique cigar filler from the Dominican Republic

    Ok.
    My skepticism is dissipating. This study is fascinating.

    https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3628911/

    Discovery of the highly transmissible nature of RNA molecules (including mRNAs and noncoding small (s) RNAs) between adjacent cells and across the whole plant [17], presumably via the plant intercellular connections called plasmodesmata, has opened up a fresh possibility for understanding the phenomenon of graft hybrids.

    Re: Yet another unique cigar filler from the Dominican Republic

    ok , my horticultural background tells me its a graft of only 2 plants, one being Criollo 98 and the other Piloto . A graft of lets say one apple tree root stock with many scions can give us an apple tree with a variety of different colored apples on a single common tree , saving field/yard space by having multiple different pollinators where one would normally be. but thats about it.
    but, I'm rusty on my horticultural technical updates by 30 yrs. I could see if it was a proven genetic cross that it could be something wonderful. I'm following this for more info.
