LOL.  Perhaps the catalog was supposed to say to 2 to 3 ounce fruit in 12 ounces 
clusters?  Thanks for the info.  I'll get these seeds in soil asap.  I hope I have a better 
germination rate than none.  I did find them on the Redwood City Seed website but 
no description.  Where did you find the seeds Bill and Catharine?
