This is a free presentation, but reservations are required by calling 763-689-1810. Our vegetable-fruit crops run the complete gamut of pollination mechanisms. We have self-pollination and cross pollination using either wind or insects to facilitate. We have vegetables with male and female flowers on the same plant. We have vegetables where the plants have all male or all female flowers. We have vegetables-fruits that tend toward and tolerate inbreeding, and we have vegetables-fruits that tend toward outcrossing and do not tolerate inbreeding.
