Sharon,
It's already been done for you and it resides at an awesome database created by Plants
for A Future
<http://www.scs.leeds.ac.uk/pfaf/index.html> The entire site is also mirrored at a
number of other sites around the world. The link above should have all the data. As
far as plant breeding, take a look at the book Breed Your Own Vegetable Varieties by
Carole Deppe available from the Permaculture Activist ($28 + 10%shipping) PO Box 1209,
Black Mountain NC 28711. The PFAF folks should be able to tell you what software they
used for their database.
