Help needed. 2018 and beyond Crosses

I currently have 11 or 12 crosses from this year that I need a bit of help with. One Rocoto, called Britanya one or two chinense and the rest are really cool baccatum crosses.

Other than the Rocoto which will be F2. The rest will be F1 and remain unknown, I will have to come up with a naming system for them.

Initially looking for help, with each person growing 1 plant of any or as many varieties as they want.

I would ask people don't swap the seeds with others at this early stage.

F2 grow will be a completely different matter. We can get to that later if things go well.

There is extremely limited seed, as in most cases I have only crossed one fruit. If you agree to help, I would really like you to grow them out, or if plans change and life throws you a curve ball, send them back.

In return I would like some isolated seed back please. Then the process starts again.

I can't do it on my own, so thought this great community may help.

If you feel able to help and have the space, next year for another plant, and want to be part of the story, please let me know.

Thanks in advance.

Can I see what the next few months bring and commit nearer to sowing time, if you still need someone by then?

Hi matey. Yes please. Any space gratefully received. I have loads, but even 1 plant would help.
