Almond and peach are easily intercrossed and the F1 plants are fertile. The high degree of synteny observed between related genera (maize and sorghum, tomato and potato) suggests that the lack of variation in the two species might be circumvented with an interspecific cross and that the information learned would be useful for other stone fruit crops. One caveat - the F2 plants might be segregating for compatibility since peaches are self-compatible and almonds are self-incompatible.
