It is interesting that the hips have the same shape as Fedtschenkoana. They all seem to contain 1 giant nut of a seed(achene).

I'm happy to say that the marginal female fertility is not very heritable. My AD seedlings have all been significantly better seed bearers than that, and one which looks for all the world like a selfing, eventually displayed one non-damascena trait; it developed spherical hips almost like a musk's, but bigger, with 5 or so achenes each. R. damascena cannot be expected to breed true, its mixture of gallica, musk and fedtschenkoana is going to recombine and express itself slightly differently almost every time, even in selfings. Pink Leda was also a good seed bearer for me, despite looking like a 100% pure damascena. So if anyone's interested in breeding Damasks, but finds the very low hip fertility of the oldest types to be a hinderance, cross them with anything, even themselves, and expect it to go away.
