Maybe a stupid guestion, but...the fruit weight totals is from 1 weigh-in ? or in total from the whole season ?
Total season harvest out of a single plant (ends December 31sh) with picture of single weigh-in.

i tried to understand but somehow my brain isnt making any sense out if it xD

Lets say i plant them next week for example. that means i should expect first pods around July somewhere..but the plant keeps throwing pods until lets say..October or even November if im lucky..how do i do a single weigh in with all the pods? the pods from july would be long gone by then.

Maybe its simple science but somehow my brain doesnt want to work right now..

Apologies if it sounds stupid

Weigh each harvest and add them all up in the end.

Entire season. The big question is who's thumb is greener? Who can get the most out of a single plant in one season? Total season's harvest weight from a single plant. Who is efficient, and who is not? Who da man is?!
and another question - are we supposed to keep this plant entirely separate from our other peppers to prevent hybridization? Or just let whatever happens happen
That's up to you. I know Chris doesn't isolate, so I'm sure he doesn't mind either way. This isn't a normal tradition, I just added it to this year's entry requirements as a gesture for Chris seeing as how I failed Matt and Chris last season. Two birds, one stone.
Germination on these is 100%. As of this afternoon five seeds were down and five little guys are up! Seven days for all to germinate.

I was growing these Sugar Rush Red Striped a few years before fatalli started selling. I got these from a guy in PLC community on Google plus. He said they were a variant from a Sugar Rush Red that he bought from Pepper Donkey. fatalli has nothing to do with this variant. I get annoyed every time I see the โ€œPeachโ€ or โ€œstripeyโ€ in the name. I might still have some F2 seeds somewhere.
Easy now...I've seen lesser comments get people nominated for the Hitler Of The Month Club.

Yes but I don't have anything else to soak but my liver at the moment๐Ÿคทโ€โ™‚๏ธ

Seeds just arrived and are now soaking! As this local spruce & rosemay gin is well known for giving me a boost, I think it should also benefit the seeds! ๐Ÿ‘Š

@Pepper-Guru Help me convince Francis Gagnon to participate๐Ÿ˜Ž
@Pepper-Guru FYI: I found a way to trick Francis! I sent him some seeds he wanted and also included the remaining 2 Peppa Peach Stripey I had left. He will now be forced to join the Growdown as it was my mandatory requirement to get his hands over my Moruga seeds๐Ÿ˜Ž๐Ÿค˜
