Debbie Ang wrote:Hello, Steve. Would love to test some of your seed here in dry, hot Utah. This year I purchased several moschata varieties from Baker Creek and planted them in a sunny area of sandy loam amended with some homemade compost. It was watered a couple times per week (we had a much hotter summer than usual, with more than 30 days of triple-digit temperatures). The harvest was unimpressive - very few, mostly small fruits. I plan to save the seed from all of them and plant them out next year. Adding some of your seeds will likely help the overall population genetics. Thanks.
