SKULLBIKER'S "Whats old is new for 22 glog"

I've put this off long enough and now it's time to start "gloging".
On January 1,2022 I picked the Brainstrains again.

1423 grams this time.

And that means two more 1 1/2 pint jars for the freezer.

And they're still alive and producing.

Those Brainstrains have been nothing
but awesome, my friend!

:cheers: Here’s to a great continuation!
 
Hey Skullbiker, even if you grow less plants, you still get more production than most of us mere mortals 😁. And thanks for the Rocoto seeds last year 😁😁. They are one of my favorite peppers now , good sting with great flavor and they flush out the sinuses πŸ‘πŸ˜.

We'll see how it goes this year. Last season was pretty darn buggy plus the discovery of root knot nematodes in many of my containers. I really like the rocotos myself. And, I had some Lemon Boy seeds left so I planted them again too!
 
"A few Billy Bombs and PeppaPeach in the back."

I haven't been able to spend much time on here for a while now so I missed it if you mentioned if you enjoyed the PeppaPeach. I assume so since you are growing them again?

I plan on growing a few this season myself.

Yes, the PeppaPeach are pretty good, and pickled they are excellent. I had a pretty good run of them last season. Here’s a pick of a lone pod I picked yesterday off of an old plant in decline, just a hint of striping. I had many with considerable, noticeabe striping last season.

I remember seeing an example of the striping on Peppapeach somewhere before and couldn't for the life of me remember where. I guess I know now :-) Thanks for sharing.

Interesting trait and obviously akin to the Sugar Rush Stripey mutation, which makes sense given the shared parental lines.

Looking forward to seeing what variations I can find and relationships between thin/thick striping when I do a big F2 grow out this season on one of my recent crosses.

I notice that the BrainStrains have
smoothed out considerably. Weather
related? IIRC the former pods were
bumpy.
