I thought I should start a new thread for this so that it is clearly separate from the idea of "standardization" of peas raised in another thread. As our friend @KsKingBee quite sensibly observed: "I think it would be quite helpful if there was an accepted manual that would spell out what the different types LOOK like. There are accepted colors, why not a definition of what they are?" So, do you think descriptions should be included? As @Garden Peas points out, these descriptions would not state what any color/pattern should look like, but only be a helpful guide for how to recognize colors/patterns. And if so, any ideas about where we would get all of these descriptions? @Garden Peas has suggested the UPA definitions (I'm looking onto this), but they certainly don't have descriptions for everything on their website. Also, I wonder if it would be useful to have both genotype and phenotype descriptions? I'm a genetics dunce, but I imagine it might be helpful for some peapeople to understand the genetic makeup of any given color/pattern. This may help with breeding-related questions. All input on this topic warmly welcomed!
