Would it be appropriate for our moderator - representiing a considerable number of potential customers - to refer Seed Savers to this thread and invite them to comment?

If they fail to respond, then their whole base ethic must be in doubt?

the true seed of what,

The true seed of Solanum tuberosum. Many plants propagate by sexual and asexual means. Potatoes are typically propagated by so called "seed potatoes", which is just a tuber (not a seed really). A true seed is an actual seed, from the fruit of the potato plant; that green cherry tomato-like fruit that develops from the flower.
