Taste is ok. Only a few really good looking seeds in there. Fermenting now.

7 seeds when I rinsed it just now. Feel kind of precious but I highly suspect they will have crossed back and be hard and green.

Interestingly so far the tomatoes on my Fairy Hollow plants are hard and green. Nice and big though for a hab x, very beefsteak like. Anybody else's Fairy hollow segregating drastically?

Interesting article re: drought induced transposons.

So if we expose plants to stressors such as drought they react with a variety of mechanisms. Transposons, epigenetic change, and in the case of a variable population: simple selection.
