The reason I asked about Caspian Pink is that rumor has it one of the seed
catalogs this year is selling a pepper that comes with the caveat--"Do not
save this seed.  It is patented, and you will face a fine of $X if you
replant it."  I have yet to find this catalog or pepper.  So I wondered,
from the tone of your original post, if the pepper was indeed really a
tomato.  I cringe at the thought of home gardening becoming so restricted
and regulated as farming has become.  A side note--with the Frankenfood
revolt building in Europe, I wonder where American farmers will be able to
sell their Bt corn and soy?  Prices are rock bottom now, and it seems like
they will go lower with the European bans.
