10+ F4 Seeds
Orange and black stripes remind me of the UM colors and someone said it was the “U” variety after me. I have done the work for you. These are a selection from T-E. Most grew F2 this year and had to search for variegated. I grew F2 last year and made a few selections. These are my F3 and a year ahead of the general public. Cross created by Eric Knight in dedication to Rich Blood and myself for the inspiration to dive into peppers. Eric has been a flower hybridizer for around 30 years. He is very well versed in genetics and holds a lot of personal experience. This was a cross with Scarlets Chili and Pablano. Non variegated x variegated always skip showing variegated at F1. If you plant enough F2, you will find some variegated with varying phenotypes. These that I have labeled “Stripe” was from a variegated F2 I selected in the 2021 season. These are the F3 generation and the seeds will be labeled F4, giving rise to the forth generation of this hybrid. There is still some variation in size from this selection, but it’s a real stunner with some decent heat coming close to some Habanero types. Eric is currently working in some more Pablano genetics in efforts to solidify a similar pepper that retains variegation. A beautiful variegated, striped stuffing pepper is the end goal for this hybrid. Some other variations from this cross include purple foliage and fruit before ripening.
