Bio
I have a small seed farm in Australia specialising in rare and unusual vegetables. I also do some breeding, mostly of cucurbits, but I have also started a potato breeding project. Many of my breeding and selection projects are aimed at producing vegetables that tolerate very hot and dry summer conditions.
