This listing is for a 1ml vial containing the pollen of a male Tropaya plant from Oni Seed Co. which produces terpenes akin to Peach Rings and Orange Creme Savers (Peachy Vanilla Creamy Orange).
While consulting for an organic living soils LP startup (currently med licensed), the head grower and co-founder graciously allowed me to remove and care for the entire stock of male plants from seed.
Now these genetics are in my backyard, all at different stages of development. Several uninteresting males have been culled from the original 600+ population. Keepers of 15 modern polyhybrid cultivars are available, and the head grower has given me permission to trade and/or sell these genetics via Strainly.io.
In some cases there are two or three quality males available, so combined pollen of some lines will also be available for the purposes of an open-pollination event, should you wish to maintain genetic diversity in your project. As well, the quarantined pollen of each individual male (with their unique traits) is also available for collection and shipment, to suit your selective breeding needs.
Seeds of these listings were purchased mostly from Speak Easy Seedbank, by the head grower earlier this Spring. Proof of purchase is available and can be provided for serious breeders. For some listings the original breeder pack has been located and photographed with the selected keeper plant(s)--for most others, it was lost during the growing season. The head grower ritualistically places the empty breeder packs with the aisleway plant of each strain for quick visual identification of the row's contents, and in most cases the pack or sticker labeling has deteriorated from water and sun damage (ie. Freeborn Selections' paper/cardstock packaging), or was simply blown away with the wind, or lost on the ground during successive transplants.
This Tropaya male is one of three remaining keepers available, selected from 13 total Tropaya males. The stem rub reveals instense orangey vanilla-y sweetness (to my nose) which reminds me of the flavours of Orange Creme Savers. The head grower insists that this male is worth keeping, and excitedly identified the terpene profile as "the same exact as Peach Rings." (which I myself have not yet smelled).
This Tropaya male is growing in a supersoil mix, in full sun, watered with KNF inputs and compost teas, and is currently alive and producing ripe sacks. (As of Aug 27th, 2019)
No pollen sacs have yet burst, but today or tomorrow they will surely open and begin dispersal for the coming weeks.
We've decided to keep this male as a breeding stud in clone form, and have taken cuts. We will also be saving some pollen for various projects this season (selective pollination of several proven keeper cuts currently in flower, in our greenhouses).
This listing is for a 1ml brown-glass vial containing roughly 25% male pollen . To prevent moisture from compromising the fertility of pollen during transport or storage, each 1ml vial will contain 75% white rice. To be clear, the size of the vial is 1ml capacity, and I will do my best to provide you with ample pollen for selective hand pollination techniques. This amount should easily fertilize upwards of 1000 pistils and produce that many seeds, given proper care and execution of technique. Stored in darkness, with stable temperatures, and at below ~10% humidity, this pollen will last up to six months; potentially longer if stored undisturbed in a dedicated freezer.
Payment accepted via PayPal as gift (with no mention of cannabis or commerce), via e-transfer, or cash in the mail. We are also willing to evaluate trade offers of seeds or cuts.

**To maintain exclusivity of these genetics, pollen will only be provided to one breeder. After successful purchase, this listing will be removed, and our in-house cut will not be shared. The reasons for this decision are as follows:
I. The respective original breeder's work is tremendous and worth supporting. We do not wish to affect the future marketability of their hard works by making an exceptional selection of their genetics widely available. Yet conversely, some genetics are too valuable to the community at large to be held exclusively. We hope that these terpene profiles will live on in future works, without detracting financially from the specific works of their creator.
II. This line will be used in our own future breeding projects, and as craft flower growers, we too aim for market differentiation.
III. The price of this listing is substantial, and the buyer is thus assured exclusivity with their purchase.
IV. Harvesting, drying, and shipping viable pollen is a tedious process.
