Found a pretty one in there. The inflorescence they were on had mostly aborted so probably an intact S allele.

Processed these two tomatoes for seed today. Only a couple super viable looking seeds in them. Wish I could tell which plant it was from. There are a few smaller ones if about the same color. Oh and I tried them. They tasted alright, edible. Only half wilds I've processed so far.

Collected the first of the year Solanum arcanum and S. Peruvianum berries today. Also got berries from the three way penellii hybrid, the F1 penellii hybrid and the pureish penellii. Ended up mixing them in the same sandwich bag. Probably all interhybridized anyhow due to proximity. Also found a berry on another F3 penellii.

Hoping to get back into this next spring.  Keep up the good work!
You’ll find me in my office. I’ll probably be drinking. And reading this tiny ad.
