The Coop collection contains a large number of unidentified glossy seedling types. As these are potentially useful seedling traits, I have been testing these against my standard series. As these have come from diverse backgrounds, all testing has been done with heterozygotes to minimize maturity differences and simplify intercrossing. To date, some 40 items have been tested. Similarly, a series of glossy mutants provided by M. G. Neuffer have also been tested. Thus far all have been found to be repeats of known glossies.
