AbstractFourwing saltbush exhibits wide variation among plants and among sites in fruit fill, seed germination, and fruit germination. Total annual rainfall or combinations of rainfall by months did not serve to predict fruit fall, fruit germination, or seed germination. Abundance of fruit produced per plant was of no value in predicting these characteristics.
