Question:
This has to do with the seedless grapes. How do seedless grapes become seedless? Some one asked a similar question and the answer was graphing and cuttings are made. Are you saying than that the gene that expresses the seed, is not cut out or made to not express itself? I love seedless grapes, but find the growing or the evolving of the seedless grape confusing. Hope you can help with this question on the making of the seedless grape. If it sounds like a repeat in of the other question, I am sorry, but I find that my question was not clear.
