MAMP BerryGum Mix
Absolutely beautiful and some of the first Purple BBG cultivars available anywhere. M.A.M.P. stands for Mojo Adicted Mutation Pepper from Enrico Lai. Enrico discovered a dark foliage, red ripening BBG in 2014 from his friend Arne's seeds. Enrico did a test cross with BBG and Pimenta De Neyde to see if that might have been the unknown cross. It couldn't be fully determined. Enrico and enthusiasts found a plethora of variations with dark and green leaf phenotypes over the years. It has spawned about every color under the rainbow, with and without calyx. I found “BerryGum” in 2017 from the original red pheno sent to me by Florissa Arroyo. I had thought Enrico named the variant "BerryGum", but I was wrong and it was someone else claiming ”Berry Cream” as their “creation” from the same seed source. I did notice some plants with different shading and I subsequently broke up the different variations. Expect differences in size,shape, shade and some that don't carry the bleeding calyx. They still give variations. I even have suspicions that the pale yellow , green leaf, BBG that spawned the regular “PurpleGum”; may be MAMP other than the upwards growing flowers. This is why it is always important pass on a peppers heritage & history. The “BerryGum” name, selection, and release originates from Bryan Townshend.
