Wonderberries are tetraploids!
I've long wondered whether wonderberries were polyploids or not, and it turns out, they are! Well, according to a couple sources on the Internet, anyway. I don't know if they're talking about research done on actual wonderberries sold as wonderberries or on Solanum retroflexum from Africa, or on the original wonderberry samples that we actually know for sure are wonderberries as grown by Luther Burbank, however. If they didn't test both, they should. If you can test them, I recommend testing the ones sold at Trade Winds Fruit, the ones at Baker Creek, and wherever else, as well as Solanum retroflexum from Africa.

I wonder if it's an allopolyploid.
I'm curious what a diploid wonderberry would be like, or an octoploid. Would the diploid have bigger fruit? Diploid tomatoes have bigger fruit than tetraploid tomatoes.
