'ploidy question

I am the lead cyber rosarian for the ARS, filtering and answering questions from around the world, in most cases sending the question off to a local CR in their area or finding an expert to answer their question. Who better than the RHA to answer this one!?

Does anyone know the answer?

"Is the Natal Briar diploid or poliploid?"

Perhaps someone can find the information in this paper? It seems as if it should be there, but I have run out of time to dig it out. Good luck, Judith!

Likely a triploid

See https://www.helpmefind.com/rose/l.php?l=2.43529.0&tab=1

Thought to be a multiflora x damask seedling. Apparently does not set many hips (typical of many triploids), and from the pictures of some hips it seems that the hips have only one or two seeds.
