In Russia there are few noted Berberis selections for edible properties (Тема, Галина, Донец, Аполлон, Ермолай). Each of them belong to different species. Mahonia aquifolium selections (Малышка, Натаха, Русалка, Тимошка, Сластена).
In Ukraine, there are selections (Безнасіннє-вий жовтий, Цу-керка 1, Цукерка 2, Цукерка 3, Безнасіннєвий червоний, Білий, Ліхтарик, Смачний, Червоний велетень). By what I could find Ukrainian selections look as the best choice for private gardens!
Iran is the most famous producer of seedless Berberis fruits. It looks like all of selections are somoclonal variations with differences coming from accumulated somatic mutations over long cultivation history. One of most distributed is selections Khorasani (خراسانی). Dry fruits can be bought in better supplied shops all around world. Also known as Zereshk. Had them and they taste great.
The only place I could find that might be selling any of those is onegreenworld.com/product-category/fruiting-shrubs/barberry/ but I couldn't validate that it is seedless. No reply to Email. I guess that it has Iranian origin considering being named with Persian name for the specie. Anyone interested in receiving few Berberis plants for free, dividing root system, keeping mother plant and forwarding root suckers? All costs covered.

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

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)
