Any pepper coming from d3 is 10/10 +1. I see it replacing pepper X any day of the week.

In Topic: C. Flexuosum frost resistance

I'm not certain, but it seems that Flexuosum isn't compatible with Chinense (or annuums/frutescens/baccatum for that matter) for breeding.


It would certainly be an undertaking even if some hybrids managed to be viable because it's a difficult trait to select for. Many factors can influence frost tolerance.


Might be easier to just try a bunch of crazy annuum or chinense crosses and see which ones die last every year and keep growing out seeds from the best survivors.



You mean recurrent selection? too hard, just grab the craziest looking peppers and show everybody how weird they look /s

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.


What is claimed is:

1. A hybrid pepper plant grown from seed deposited with the ATCC under Accession No. PTA-2275.
Theyve patented just one variety, specifically the variety deposited under accession number PTA-2275.
