Hello,
      I plan on treating Solanum sisymbriifolium (Litchi Tomato) seeds 
with colchicine. I can imagine that this specific plant has been ignored 
by major plant breeders but, I am interested it treating other edible 
crops as well.

      Could someone recommend any books or articles covering the use of 
induced polyploid seedlings on food crops? 



                                                    Thank you,

                                                    Douglas Sutton
