i went to check on my garden after the remnants of the hurricane came through from the gulf.  no damage but found a few surprises.  my 5 reaper plants went crazy during the week.
 
the wild variation in the phenotype on these reapers is shocking. the plants all came from the same pods seeds. which was the traditional shape.

That Red Rocoto plant looks pretty happy
with the cooler weather, Scott! Nice pods.
 
Awesome OW candidate!
 
Regarding phenotype, I am becoming convinced
weather has a huge amount to do with it. The pods
that set in our hotter weather are usually more true
to form than the Fall pods, forming in cooler weather
and all over the place shape-wise. Devv's Papa Dreadie
Red was a good example.

Good deal on the inside rocoto. Hopefully you'll start to see color soon.

Totally agree on the environmental factor.  Shape and even color to some degree.
 
tragedy struck my rocoto dreams.  the pod fell off, now im hoping it was close enough to ripen on the counter.

Paul checkout the tomatos that you sent me seeds for. that tropical storm set them back, but they're still trying.

You are closing out in fine form, Scott!
 
Glad to see the tomatoes are still giving
it a shot. Those were Siletz, correct? I
found a new variety this season - Tasti-Lee
from Territorial Farms. Big, firm tomatoes
that did well even in the low temps. 
 
Even glader to see the Trippaul Threat White
Lightening putting out the pods for you. The
light purple shading is really beautiful.
 
im sure trying to encourage these plants to a big finish! temps just dropped to 41, but should be warming back up. so if im lucky maybe ill get another good week or two.
 
yes it was the siletz, if the tropical storm hadn't laid them all down id of had lots more produced.  they're still out there trying!
 
did you save seeds from those? or is that something I can buy online?  im up for trying any types you recommend.

The Siletz can be purchased from Hume Seeds.
If you can't find them, let me know and I'll dig into
my box for a few. I didn't save any this year, but I
think I still have some of the Hume Seeds. I'll send
some Indigo Cherry and Taste-Lee, as well.
 
You mentioned before you would like to grow rocotos.
Are you still wanting some seed?

ill gladly try to grow those types. my family consumes a lot of tomato's. lol  ill look for the siletz seeds. my gf loved those all season.
 
id love some more rocoto seeds to try.  i know i need to try a better spot next year. even the partially shaded side was too much for them esp when it was blisteringly hot.
 
i appreciate any help you're willing to give or trade. :D

In the process of sorting and bagging seeds as
we speak. Will get a 'care package' in the mail
soon. Will let you know when it's in the mail.

sorry to hear that.  ive got about ten all full of pods. the pain is picking all those tiny pods. lol
I hear that. I'm surprised the birds don't get after
them in the Fall. Next season, I might just let one
grow and not pick any pods to see if the birds might
try them out when winter comes.
