If they did they would have crossed with anyone of the following wilds.
1. C. Eximium
2. C. praetermissum
3. Judy's Mystery Blue ( C. preatermissum ) ??
4. Chiltepin sp.
Then maybe a cross with either a Barracpore or a 7pod Infinity, these last two I doubt that any pollen from them got to my galapagoense as my plants were grown between the Eximiums and Chiltepins with the taller Praetermissum's hanging over them, for some shade. So I will keep a few pods myself just to see if they crossed and what with, normally I would not do this as it would be too easy for me to forget to make sure that they are marked as a cross and later what they were crossed with. But as I have plenty of tags I can make sure the pods get put in a package marked that they are a unknown cross of a galapagoense mother with a question mark as who the father might be as soon as the ripe pods dry.
Vegas_Chili said:Wow, that's a nice flower. Seems larger than the galapagoense flower and more annuum like. Very cool.
wildseed57 said:I think there is a cross with a C. chinense that is being sold by one of the Vendors, Not Judy though.
Vegas_Chili said:Nice!! Looks more like the galapagoense, turned out nice.
That one crossed with the bhut should be interesting....
Thanks Walt, I actually have a few pods pollinated with bhut pollen that are developing nicely on the plant. I'm not going to grow them all out... you could give it a try if you like...
