This listing is for a 1ml vial containing the pollen of a male Mint Julep F2 plant from Thunderfudge Genetics which produces terpenes identical to the Maker's Mark Mint Juleps my dad used to make at his annual Kentucky Derby parties for nearly 40 years. Hit me in the nostalgia feels like whoa. Brings back fond memories of him and the Mint Juleps I always had too many of.
This Mint Julep F2 male is one of six remaining keepers available, selected from 16 total Mint Julep males. The stem rub from this specific male plant listing is a straight up Mint Julep, made to perfection. "margarita to whiskey sour, very fresh and crisp" is a highly accurate description of the line, from the breeder, @runningwithlightning
The other five males that I kept are all less potent and less on-point for the true Mint Julep terpenes, but I've chosen to keep them for an easy low-cost means to achieve a diverse open pollination, as @runningwithlightning originally has. (He used 4 males and 2 females to create these wonderful plants.) So if you'd like pollen from multiple males for your own open-pollination of Mint Julep, I am happy to combine the pollens in any combination, from whichever plants of whichever terpene ranges you'd like me to select from. Depending on your needs, this listing can provide you with between 1 and 6 Mint Julep males pollen.
Personally, I intend to use these other five males in an in-ground open pollination autoflower project in the Gary Oak Meadow on my lot; I'll be breeding for outdoor autoflowering growing and drought resistance. I'll have Mint Julep Auto IBL testers in a few years if I'm lucky.
This specific Mint Julep F2 male is growing in a supersoil mix, in full sun, watered with KNF inputs and compost teas, and is currently alive and producing scores of ripe sacks. (As of Aug 27th, 2019)
The pollen sacs on this MJ are dense like a 90's McDonald's ballpit--just a sea of stanky balls. A lucky find, as I believe pollen sac density is an indicator of dominant alleles which correlate to the development of abundant female floral bract development. This male will likely produce some high yielding Mint Julep plants.
We've also decided to keep this male as a breeding stud in clone form, and have taken cuts. My dad's Mint Juleps captured in a photoperiod IBL is a personal goal, and I'm grateful that the head grower of this LP startup has decided to pursue and share in that goal as well. While his facility works on achieving a true MJ photoperiod line, I'll be trying my best to integrate those terpenes into a resilient autoflowering line at home, in my spare time.
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.
