Wow, who even thought there was 60 varieties.

This reminds me of the youtube of the guy who grows 6,000 pounds in his small backyard.  He did a lecture at a college and had some facts about how many varieties of plants we used to eat but don't eat now.  Most of the disappearance had to do with timing, shipping, perishability, yield, etc.
