10+ F5 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. 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. 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, milder 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.
