I don't know Roy (well not that I know of anyway)
>Another question is whether it's a virus rather than genetic. Does it
That was my first question to him. A good percentage of the seeds throws
true. That was what I meant in the original email when I talked about it
being at least partially stable. He said that he has scattered the seed
around and got numerous variegated seedlings appear, so it would appear
that it wasn't a virus as I am fairly sure that viruses are not generally
transmitted via seed.
Certainly sounds interesting doesn't it!!?
Thanks for the response.
