Re: RE: Red Beards

There is some nice home chemistry seoerations you can do to clarify this further. The anthocyanins are water soluble and can be extracted with water or alcohol (methyhydrate works well, used as a paint thinner and redily available). The carotenes and lycopene are oil soluable and can be disolved in lamp oil (cheap and available at most hardware stores). Take your red beard from  seedlings and disolve in warm alcohol. Then add some oil and shake. The carotenes and lycopene will move to the oil and antyocyanin will remain in the alcohol. Disolve some lycopene from red beards as on Stately Art or from a pink iris or from a tomato (same lycopene pigment) and compare them.

Good, Good, Good stuff Chuck!
Much, Much, Much appreciated here.
