Growdown Throwdown 2021 XL Antep Aci Cross

Everyone knows the rules by now...
 
Lets vote on this thing and get it moving since we are already behind a few days. 
 
As per the customary flex, I want all my Growdown King crowning gifts to be given to the runner up in second place for 2020. Who was 2nd?
 
Make sure they get some goodies! 
 
 
 
 
 
As for this year here are the candidates that I can provide ISOLATED seed for: 
 
 
Binquinho Pink - C chinense dominant

We are certainly behind a few days, so lets get this vote in and decided on rather quickly. 
 
Do NOT vote if you're not going to compete. 
 
I'll do SASBE for these this year. So your germination date will depend on how quickly you get that to me. Whatever we decide, seeds are READY TO GO. 
 
Let's Get It! May the best grower win! 
 
 
 
Very nice; I need a cage like that to keep my plants from breaking apart. You won't have to worry about me at this point...only one more harvest left and I'd be surprised if it hit four digits on the weigh in.

Nice work Rich!
Thats two 4 ft cages, zip tied together at the middle, had to, otherwise branches were snapping left and right out of the top. Hell of a year this year! Thanks for growing with us again. I may have one more small pull left yet.

Well guys and gals, its over. Last night hit us at 28F and the plant didn't look so hot today. Never perked back up so, I guess I'll be making that last pull full of the season tomorrow. Sad day indeed.

Anyone else still have decent growing temps left until Jan1?

Guess I should get a head start on 2022 Vote Thread huh?

Any variety suggestions for next year?

Dare we try something other than the annuum complex (annuum, frut, chin)? Do we dare to venture out into baccatum, or pubescens?
 
Piri Piri maybe?
Interesting idea! We have to make sure we get the RIGHT Peri Peri though,C frutescens, NOT the long annuum floating around that many think is Peri Peri. Tried explaining this to Chilichump and others, but hey, as long as they enjoy it, it doesn’t matter what they call it, haha

I was thinking of adding @PaulG and @Trippas Purple Thunder to the list too. I have just sent a huge bag to @PaulG but have one other bag if we decided on it. We have a ton of options obviously.

I would like Purple Thunder. It would be very interesting to compare the beautiful colors of the pods.

I’d be happy to mail out some of the seeds for the growdown after they get here.
