I mapped out my garden to better plan everything for next season. It took a whole afternoon of measuring and drawing but it turned out pretty good. Not sure if I can fit the number of plants I planned for though, it's just a first draft.
I just couldn't resist attempting one more cross, just as a little bonus for next year: Cumari Pollux x Pimenta da Neyde. I didn't really want to make another PdN cross, as there are so many already out there. But I just love the look of both of these peppers so yeah here we are. Maybe I can get a purple plant with some pubescence, that would be pretty cool. According to the crossing matrix, C. Praetermissum x C. Chinense is viable, but the other way around isn't. Let's see if that's correct!
I've seen/heard some growers say something along the lines of "I'm going to save seeds from this specific pod because of the way it looks". But from what I understand all pods from the same plant share the same genetics, right? Why do people do this?
I didn't really want to make another topic on this pepper, but I want to put it in the right place in my collection. I wrote it down as a Frutescens, but I see people refer to it as a Chinense too. Which is it?
Ps. I got some serious deja-vu going on asking this question, but I searched the whole forum and I can't find the answer.
Sonka, who put the seeds in the train, confirmed it was probably an accidental cross. I love crosses so for me it's no problem at all, I'll try to grow the true Duke Pequin next season. I wonder what these will be like!
