I guess Wong/Yinger (a hybrid?) answered that question.

And since Wong/Yinger says "Excellent culture and high fertility will
produce a population of females" I guess that I'm just "lucky" enough to
have the right conditions.  In the patch of my oldest, largest plants, 10
out of 12 have set seed.

Now here is my question:  Am I likely to end up with 100% female
plants?  Then what?--no more seed set?

In the other patch, all the plants bloomed but only two out of nine set
seed, and these are the biggest plants.
