Volunteer / resource needs: Growing out more plants, evaluating plants in the garden & kitchen. Selecting for fruit quality, flavor, appearance, disease resistance, earliness, plant vigor, etc. Volunteers must be able to grow >6 plants per genepool (for comparative purposes). Get together in August / September to taste test the best plants as a group and make selections.
Additional Comments: Seeds or plants are available.
Let us know soon if you want to get involved, so that plants can be started as needed
