I also just started a page for Tomato Breeding information. It's very rough. Figure i'd start with detailed information and any photos i can collect of wild tomato species and varieties. Feel free to add your own photos, specific varieties like LA1777 for example, other breeding lines like Neandermato for example, or anything you'd like. I have permission to link to Frogsleap Farm blog, not sure about photos yet, but hey, it's a start. Also feel free to edit any incorrect information or add info that is missing.

In the middle of working on the wild tomato stuff. Apparently the info that i copied over from wikipedia / wikispecies or whatever is really out dated. The photo that was included was actually for S. galapagense instead of S. cheesmaniae. So that is one thing that needs to be fixed. Surly lots of other things too. If you happen to have photos of wild tomatoes and or photos of wild tomatoes without copyright notices on them please upload them to the wiki.

added preliminary S. peruvianum and S. habrochaites pages. they are in ROUGH shape. Just a few photos, no summary yet. (plan to add a separate page for the off-type LA1777 specifically down the line too). Plan to add pages for wild tomato breeding lines and hybrids too eventually and other significant lines or mutants.
Thanks to mostly Joseph Lofthouse for the photos. There will always be a need for more photos from a variety of angles, etc, and from a larger variety of contributors. But so far i'm liking how the tomato wiki is forming. Should be a nice resource (if only for myself) as to what the standard leaf morphology, growing habit, fruit appearance, and other traits may be for a given species.

HELP!! I ran into spam bogging my mediawiki installation down and so i tried to delete it and restore an older backup, but i can't seem to get it working right like before. If anyone has website skills and/or knows how to restore a full tar file backup into working order with cPanel i would really appreciate the help!

just a quick update that John has helped me recover my wiki data for the Pea Collaboration Project and Tomato Breeding info on wild species. I can now work on trying to either restore things on a new easier to use wiki software (maybe docuwiki) and lock it down to prevent spam issues again, or using to create static html pages.
keen101 (Biolumo / Andrew B.): Looking for Goldini Zucchini again. Thinking of setting up my own seed shop for OSSI varieties in the future.

wilscase: I'm a graduate student at Oregon State and have been working with populations segrgating for different color genes such as the B gene in Cucurbita. I'm curious if anyone has experience with crosses in Cucurbita maxima between grey blue types and orange?

wilscase: I have been backcrossing to the grey parent for 4 generations and have finally selfed the heterozygotes (for the Bmax gene) the populations have segregated for diffuse bicolor (pink/blue, orange green), blue green, blue, green, pink (salmon) and orange
Oct 18, 2022 21:36:29 GMT -5
wilscase: The genes involved are Bmax and bl. I have observed that Bmax is incompletely dominant to wild type (green). I have read that bl is incompletely recessive to Bl(wild type). I'm curious if anyone else has observed the behavior of Bmax in a grey/blue type
Oct 18, 2022 21:38:28 GMT -5
wilscase: It appears that bl and Bmax are interacting to produce different shades of salmon and pink.

wilscase: I'm also interested in any other color genetics, especially the relationships between B and L genes. In the right background these genes can dramatically increase Carotenoids (vitamin A)
