I’ve got plenty of 6.66’s. If you want some email me rickspaziani@yahoo.com. It’s that simple.

Thanks for taking the time to send the seed out Rick - I couldn't do the cross justice this year as it ended up on what turned out to be a troublespot in the garden, but thanks again for the opportunity.

Good to see that you got it tho to 6.66 - so shows lots of potential!

Congrats & good numbers...Yeah out too... didnt care well for my plants-- including my big marleys-- after none of my first trusses set. (Not getting any first trusses was discouraging)

really nice results for the first year....just think....next year, of the F2's 1/4 of the genetic strain will be doubled. What I find really interesting...so many growers set their pb with this first year cross. I have to think the potential has barely been tapped. Hoping all those that set pb's have saved seeds. The next generation could be much better.
