After years of listening to me talk on and on about my projects, my dad is finally getting the plant breeding bug. The group of species he's interested in is the ground cherries, Physalis sp., and his birthday is coming up soon, so I was wondering if anyone has seeds they'd be willing to trade.
It looks like there are lots of commercial sources for P. ixocarpa and P. pruinosa, and a few for P. peruviana, so those are less interesting unless they're unusual varieties. What I'd love to find are some of the other species like P. heterophylla or P. subglabrata, or something else that hasn't come up in my searches so far.
(In case you're wondering, I do plan to skim a few seeds off the top so I can try some wide crosses of my own.)
Reply here or PM me if you're interested in a trade. I have some common x runner beans, some other interesting beans of various species, TPS, tomatoes, mixed-up oregano, and some awesome cilantro from ars-grin that's probably still viable. I could dig through my collection and find some other stuff, too.
I am not in the US, but I have heterophylla, a possible hybrid heterophylla x pruinosa (still not sure about it, but it is different from common heterophylla with leves more like pruinosa) a pruinosa growing like crazy, it is 1meter in height and 1meter in width ( I have no idea what is the reason for it. It is the first time) and a peruviana with fruits big like mid size tomatillos (it is bred by a german amateur, from another forum. But still no fruits this year) Beas Dicke
