That's very interesting.  I wonder if there's any way they can identify them genetically?  
I'm sure Mushroom can help with this one...

genome sequencing. I doubt any apple species has been completely sequenced, that's the only way to tell unless you had a good idea of what and where you were looking on the genome.

There are some serious research programs going on in a lot of countries and a lot of work is going into building up collections and databases of known varieties and genetic materials are catalogued.

We just discovered a bit too late that we lost a lot of varieties since industrialization began and that this was no good. And this is the biggest problem these people are facing, lack of continuity in agricultural knowledge.

Reading some of these databases one feels there was a variety for every ten village or so, and the naming of them(usually referring to place of origin) must have been very important and retained, for local pride and as valuable agricultural information.

People's world was surprisingly much bigger than previously thought, even in viking times, they traded and interacted even with dif cultures, that included plants, however, naming retains original(even foreign language words for ID), unless by mistake or misunderstanding and ignorance, as in cocoa and chocolate beans, Jer Artichokes.

you're early today, Gobs! I'd be down the plot as well today, if I didn't have to work right now. Looks like it will be a nice clear day, too, :sigh:
