803 Clementz... this seed gave me my current personal best if 930 lb and did exceptionally well in the extreme heat we had last summer... I believe I can go further than 930 lbs with this seed, the genetics are there.

Plants are in the ground and ready to grow.... I'm a few days early this year... the plants were starting to get weird in the pots so I planted them as soon as I could... I found out the reason why the plants were going sideways on me was a lack of water in the pots they were a bit on the dry side
