So that's why my Orange Strawberry flower cones always looked brown! Bumbles must love 'em.

Habrochaites is usually self incompatible but there are a few accessions that are self compatible. LA2175 is one such and is interesting for several other reasons such as exceptional resistance to foliage disease. Since Joseph planted 4 different lines, he met the requirements for pollen compatibility with the result he got good crops of fruit. Habrochaites is extremely spit-out-the-mouth bad flavored as a rule. A few of us are working with hybrids trying to repackage some of the good genes into a domestic tomato background.

I'm working in both directions. I'm also working on repackaging some of the good domestic genes into a wild tomato background.

Good work! Yeah keep us updated. I need to go check if you've posted updates on your other threads.

I had good fruit set on the peruvianum and habrochaites plants late in the season. The bees loved them all season. I'm thinking the habrochaites and peruvianum most likely crossed with eaach other as they are so close on the tree that i think they can cross easily.

Also has awesome fruit set on the pennellii hybrids. Bees loved those too. Exciting stuff.
