The original heirloom did not have cracking issues, but the volunteers I got from its cross-pollinated progeny looked perfect in every way except every single one of them split from top to tip (avatar shows it just before ripening and splitting). And only that variety - all the other cross-pollinated mutts I grew that year were just fine. Somebody has a weak gene.....

This year since my seedling starts survived I will have the original heirloom again instead of having to rely on volunteers for my entire crop!

I have heirlooms for the first time this year but reading your post leaves me a little confused as what is the diference between an originate vs. a volunteer?

Now I got my seeds from Johnny's so would they be volunteers?

Is that a historical reference?! Wink

Volunteers are plants that show up out of the blue of their own volition in the darndest places sometimes. Commonly found in compost piles, or where harvests weren't thoroughly cleaned up, or where seeds may have been accidentally dropped.
