Some scientists are trying to use gene editing to make a spicy tomato.
Is this good or terrible? I'm not sure.
@sixohsix Honestly the two are so closely related it shouldn't be difficult.
Relatedly, if you cross tomatoes and potatoes enough you can end up with a plant that produces edible (but inferior) tomatoes and edible (but inferior) potatoes.
@sixohsix imo gene editing is just a faster and more accurate version of what we've been doing for thousands of years with cultivation and breeding
