should be out searching for superior clones that
taste good COOKED.  That means it takes a bit more effort to compare clones. 
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.
