I suppose the named selections, being tetraploid, were selected for making
bigger fruit? Did the wild selections have small fruit?"
The wild plants produced a variety of sizes of fruit whereas the named
varieties produced fruit of a more uniform size. The average size of wild
fruit is smaller but some fruits are as large as the tetraploid's.
