Now I am really confused.  I thought you could not patent a plant that reproduces sexually.  That is what PVPA is for.  I have got to be missing something.

Am I missing something or did I just read that pollination is now patented.  If so, guy we gotta get together and patent sex.

If it will help promote the train, I will promise to add some AJ's Magical Unicorn Toe Pepper seeds.  Each one grown with real A.J.

You are right about others growing it. However, when I look through the pepper forums, I see every month someone asking where to buy reaper seeds. Still, after 3-4 years since the original distribution, people always tell the person to go to the source if you want reliable genetics. They are still selling piles of seeds, and selling commercial sized orders of small plants to nurseries and garden stores.


Maybe I dont have perspective on how large the market is.  But even if that market is huge, think about the cost of developing such a thing.  I think Mr. Currie said Pepper X took 10 years.  Seems like playing the lottery.  Still can not imagine it is worth it.  I am very content getting a fair return on a fair amount of labor.
