Adorning the front cover of the latest MTU Report is an unusual-looking flower. The image stands for a lot more than a welcome sign of summer. The flower in question is a hybrid, a cross between the rose and the ornamental leek. The result is the leek rose, which has not yet been given a botanical classification. With its own hybrids, MTU is already a step ahead. Just how far ahead is the subject of the leading article in this issue of MTU Report.
As yet the MTU hybrid systems are tender seedlings, but they will develop into full flower before too long. Testing of hybrid systems for yachts and trains is to start soon.
