Anybody else having any luck?
No! The plant is full of flowers but they all drop (same for my two other Rocoto varieties) and time is running out fast...

I soaked my seeds in diesel for an extra long time, so maybe that helped 🤪
I have 3 backup plants that are producing pods quite regularly and one that has several hundred flowers but no pods.
I used Ocean Forest in my growbags, maybe that helped.

100% of my flowers have dropped to the ground...hundreds of them. Not a single pod. Weirdest thing I've ever seen
Same story for me buddy; we're definitely not having a great season overall around here but still, I would have expected at least 1 pod! My plant is full of flowers & flower buds too but even hand pollination does not help. Some flowers seem pollinated but a few days later the peduncles turn yellow then they fall.

Go figure... 🙄

Up to 755g now.
Slow down now!!!


Ok guys, this first picking is a lousy 586 grams, and is NOT from my contest plant. I repeat, NOT from my contest plant. I almost forgot about these on my back up plant in the main patch, and it’s time to deseed, so some were a bit ripe. Anyway…here is a 586gram first pull off the #15 gallon plant. Isolated back up. Non contest pan.

As for the update on the contest plant. Let’s just say, “something” happened, I’m working through it, I will only harvest once this year if at all from the plant, and I’ve been documenting it the entire time, so you will all get to see a recap of it at the end of the season if I finally get anything from it.

For now, Guru total: 0 grams
