Soon on the shelves - tomato-mutants

Genetics do not stop in their attempts to bring giant fruit. A team of researchers who just published their research in the journal Nature that figured out how to bring a giant tomato.


To do this, they studied the natural mutations that exist in nature. It is known that the Indians, who bred the tomatoes before Columbus, some varieties have been hoo even by modern standards. Scientists have found that the mutation made giant tomatoes. And found they think the gene, which affects the correct development of the trunk (from him are the branches, all the juice going in one giant fruit). And these mutations geneticists now raised on the shield.

Don't know whether you'll like what you stores will offer — and it will happen soon — sick tomatoes. Very large, beautiful, but in fact sick. Probably not. But don't worry too much. Almost everything that is traded in the shops, one way or another have touched their genetics experienced and cold hands. published

P. S. And remember, only by changing their consumption — together we change the world! ©
