      If you got cross pollination you might get some valuable seeds. Any effect on your fruit would be minimal.

        If they crossed I wouldn't know it.this is the first year I have pruned them and will be checking and amending the soil they have been together for years there is a wild high bush and a short compact wild one the other two are patriots I think.not much fruit ever so I'm trying to jump start them all and will be adding three more to the mix.

          Best of luck with them. If you wanted to breed all you need is a small paintbrush.

            How close are your patriots to the wild ones?

                IIRC, cross pollination increases berry size as compared to self pollination.
