This will go nicely in a conversation on another forum where we are ruminating on the domestication of plants and the difference between the “original” corn and modern corn and creating a new variety of apple.

I've grown a number of Brad Gates' tomatoes over the years - Beauty King (won my taste test that year, but had a very thick core), chocolate cherry, chocolate chestnut, lucid gem, and sweet carneros pink (great flavor, and production, but disease prone). I don't think that any of the 18 varieties I am growing this year are his cultivars.

Now, when is someone going to take his crosses and make them more widely available?
