This is a dedicated grow log for Tristen's awesome cross, which I

have been growing out since 2014.  I'll start with a bit of history and

some photos documenting what's happened so far.

 

In January of 2014, Tristen (Trippa) sent me a little care package of seeds.

In the package were two generations of a cross he had made, which he just 

called 'Mystery Cross, F1' and 'Mystery Cross, F2'.  

 

Here's Trippa's Mystery Cross seedlings in February of 2014:

Both generations showing the purple foliage characteristic since the beginning.

 

Up close look at Trippa's Mystery Crosses, F1 and F2.  Both culled to a single

plant after the photo taken, so I only had one plant of each generation:

Okay, back in the saddle again.  I checked out of this forum last September,

when my wife and I went on an 8-week vacation.  We had a blast, then I came

home to two months of yard work to catch up on, and holiday season to

contend with   :doh:   

 

I just this week finished grinding up all the dry pods from last season.  Managed

to get my seeds in to soak on Jan. 15th, and into the Jiffy Pellets on Jan. 16th.

I'm going for fewer varieties this season, but 3 or 4 plants of most varieties that

I grow out.  No small pod peppers this year, just too labor intensive for the results,

although I have some awesome small pod powders laid away.   Speaking of which,

I have so much powder I'm considering packaging and selling some this summer.  

I'm going to try to sell my fresh pods this Fall, so maybe no more powder production

until I need some, and then, just my favorites.  

 

2016 grow list and germination record:

Grow List 2014 - Many new varieties and a few repeaters.  

This is the third year of my original three year plan to grow a slew of different

types to see what grows well here before settling on some consistent performers.  

I'd love to grow some of the new varieties from this season again, and some more

of my favorites from 2012, but not enough space.  But I have seed for my favorites for

season 2015, so I have something to look forward to already!  

 

Major goal for season 2014 - lay in a good supply of super hot powder!

Just a quick update on the wild Texas Tepins.  This one has the most ripe pods; all will have to go to the greenhouse when and if I need space for starts in party cups:
