Excellent information.  If cutting a piece of skin from the fruit to taste, will the cut portion "skin" over or heal itself?

Thanks for the reply Skandi.  From my understanding, this would work with a non-landrace, because all of the fruits will be the same...but for a landrace, where each fruit is different, how would one guarantee that the flavor doesn't vary from one fruit to another?

Please pardon my ignorance, as I am just beginning to learn seed saving...how does one go about selecting for flavor in a summer squash landrace (or I guess cucumbers for that matter) when the seed saving stage does not match the timing of the eating stage?
