Genetic Recombination in the Eggplant Jungle
What you see here, in the bottom right hand corner, is an all white indian eggplant on a plant that is also producing regularly patterned indian eggplants. What sort of mischievous bees have been pollinating my eggplants? Genetic recombination appears to be running rampant in my garden, because I also have some all purple indian eggplants on another plant that also has some regularly patterned indian eggplants on it.
I find this somewhat bizarre, considering that this has not happened before in the three years I have been growing these eggplants.
Should I save these oddball seeds?
