I think the resin glands are epidermal structures, and their products in a
periclinal chimera might be expected to be those of the epidermal
species, assuming that the resins are completely formed by the glands that
secrete them... As for flowering, commercial hops are the unfertilized,
strongly resinous/glandular, pistillate inflorescences of the female hops
plant (sound familiar?)
The experiment could be interesting, but you didn't hear the idea from me,
