I kinda stumbled over that concept of De Novo Domestication…
Interesting, to think about all that “traits” that we lost over the hundreds and thousands of years of domestication our plants into what they are now.
With the current and new technologies we could re-design from the beginning again!
“Recent technological advances have raised the possibility of de novo domestication of wild plants as a viable solution for designing ideal crops while maintaining food security and a more sustainable low-input agriculture.”
Anyway fun to think and see what kinda mutant things we have domesticated into different vegetables.
