Default Any experience with growing out the seeds from a seed ball?

I've read somewhere (I think the Robert Lobitz story in the SSE first 10 years book) that there is lots of variability and genetic richness in the seeds that form occasionally from potato flowers. Tom or anyone, have you played around with such seeds, and what is the diversity/possibilities like from that? I suspect that the yield the first year would not be very good, but any potatoes that result are saved and increased the following year. Related, what is the diversity in a CV such as Yukon Gold? Or modern Russets???
