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.

#1561392 Pimenta De Neyde x Bonda Ma Jacques

Posted by b3rnd on Yesterday, 09:18 AM

Looking good my friend! Ready to rock in the
Michigan summer! Nice and healthy looking with
great color...

Sitting in Amsterdam airport waiting for our
standby flight.
With any luck, we will be home in 12 hours!
Will be interesting to see how my plants have
fared since March 7th!

 

Woo! Welcome to the Netherlands, Paul. Even if it's just for a few hours, lol! Just 100 kilometres away from me even. Hope you had a great holiday.

Thanks, Devv!

 

 

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!

Looking good man! Love the look of those Cinders. That Peach Clavo x Pink Tiger is pretty cool too. What are the pods like?

Here are some pictures, because what's a glog without pics?

Planted some peppers in the ground anyway. Wasn't planning on it, but I thought what the hell.

I attempted to make a Thunder Mountain Longhorn x Aribibi Gusano cross today. Let's hope it takes! The Aji Angelo x Cumari Pollux cross seems to be a success.

#1560177 Different pod genetics

Posted by b3rnd on 15 June 2018 - 03:55 AM

Hey people,

 

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?




#1559997 Serviceberry?

Posted by b3rnd on 14 June 2018 - 11:11 AM

If you search on Google images on 'serviceberry unripe' you get loads of pictures that very closely resemble yours.




#1559752 Aji Charapita: Chinense or Frutescens?

Posted by b3rnd on 13 June 2018 - 09:13 AM

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!

The calyx on the Duke Pequin also doesn't look very Frutescens. Accidental cross maybe? I got it from the seed train.

All the plants are podding up now. There are a few that I'd like to grow a bit bigger before throwing so many flowers, but pinching them isn't really an option anymore.

Next year I'm probably going to start my seeds a bit later because of this. I think the plants will ease into the season better.

I've made an attempt to make an Aji Angelo x Cumari Pollux cross this morning. I'd like to see what comes out of that. Let's hope the cross takes!
