Certainly worth a call - but I don't have high hopes.

My son was studying generic engineering of plants and has quite the background in how they do what they do. Not quite his specialty but he knows an awful lot of 'trivia' in this field. Nada from him. (Alas, after getting the degree, he turned to the dark side and didn't pursue it).

As mutations go, it couldn't be common since it's absolutely lethal in terms of ever producing offspring. It may be that some of our vegetable varieties will need a little gene-tinkering to fix accumulated ills from husbandry/breeding the "old fashioned way".

My disappointment with my son's change of fields is considerable:   I wanted him to develop the "Salsato" - a tomato variety genetically enhanced with hot-pepper genes. What a magnificent accomplishment!
