Dear All,

I am writing to let you know that this will be my last blog post for the Physalis Improvement Project as I am moving on to a new position. Over the past three growing seasons I have enjoyed getting to know many of you as we worked together to learn more about the Physalis species. We started as a small group of 20 and have since grown to over 800 participants. Wow! I really appreciated the excitement and enthusiasm that you community scientists brought to the project, and wish you all a fruitful end to your growing seasons.

Future communication regarding the Physalis Improvement project can be directed to Joyce Van Eck at

Best wishes,
