This listing is for seeds from Purple Bliss plant which was flowered in-ground with 20+ different males of 14 modern and heirloom lineages.
Purple Bliss is (Illegal Alien x BOGD) from 7 East Genetics:
Info on the 14+ males these seeds are from:
Worked for LP startup. They had reg. seed pheno hunt projects going outdoors. Saw 600+ males show throughout season and asked to select for home use. Brought home ones with strongest smelling stem rubs.
Had 50+ males of 15+ strains under observation in home garden (July '19). Gradually narrowed down from 3-4 excellent plants of each strain grown from seed, to the top 1 or 2 exemplary males. In the cases where an additional male of a cultivar is kept, it is often due to: a.) diametric representative expressions, each identic of the original lineages' known terpene profiles, b.) multiple idyllic candidates for homogenous open pollination IBL projects, c.) desireable inter-breeding traits such as pollen sac cluster density, molds resistance, colour, pest resistance, internodal spacing.
Of the males used in this project, I cloned and now keep three for use in future work: Mint Julep, Sky Cuddler, and Yuck Mouth.
As well, I saved pollen of several winner males, and posted those listings here in September.
Below are short descriptions of the males. I've also referred to my notes as well as my prior (now closed) pollen listings. Photos of most of these males in early flower are available.
Male Pollen Donors:
I. Lemon Heads - "The stem rub on each of these two keepers is intense lemon; this one listed is more of an intense fresh lemon peel zest, the other is more of a chemically lemon pinesol." (Both kept.)
II. Krome Lemons - Faint soapy lemon scent. Kept for genetic variety in progeny.
III. 707 Chemdawg - One late-flowering male of excellent structure and scent; identified by the head grower as a keeper and dead ringer for Chemdawg terps. The grower has experience growing Chem lines.
IV. Sour Larry Lime Pebbles #4 - Two males; one tall vigorous male with intense fresh lime scent (#1), and another male that purpled up heavily--stems, sacs, leaves, everything deep purple with green veining.
V. Firedawg - "The stem rub hit me in the gut, made my eyes water, and dried out my throat for like twenty minutes; pretty much an intense allergic reaction." The head grower reports that several Firedawg females are better representations of Chemdawg than the 707 Chemdawg females.
VI. Deadhead OG x 4DD - My notes just say, "Boss says keep"
VII. Mint Julep - I found six males that smelled minty--but this one keeper smelled exactly like the Maker's Mark bourbon Mint Juleps my dad used to make at his Kentucky Derby party every year. Instant nostalgia. Kept as clone--will work toward finding these terps in future progeny.
VIII. Mint Sours - More than 70% of our 40+ seeds were male, so we speculated that these genes may have genetic predisposition to higher male populations--or more likely, just a statistical outlier. But this male kept was minty, but super sour like a shot of greenapple Sour Puss. Good find.
IX. Tropicanna Cookies F2 - Two males--one with a creamy orange vanilla terps, like orange soda and vanilla ice cream, or orange creamsicles. Another male with fresh squeezed orange juice terps.
X. Tropaya - One strongly Papaya dominant with a hint of lime, another with a nose identical to Peach Rings (candy peach creamy orange smell). Both experienced botrytis on stem tissue.
XI. Sky Cuddler - I hit these males hard with molds pressure--doused/drenched with a hose twice, daily kept in shade with no air flow, tried to induce stem rot and PM for 3+ weeks straight through August and September. All seven were invincible to PM. But I killed off a few with botrytis stem rot. Then four (4) mold-proof males were kept.
XII. Guerrilla Fumes - Intense eye-burning chemically stem rub like Firedawg and how a good Chemdawg should be. Kept one male.
XIII. Ghost OG - Super sticky stanky stem rub male. Great OG nose. Leaves and pollen sacs had trichomes.
XIV. Yuck Mouth - Gross sour and astringent vomit/puke smell, real gut-turning. Disgusting but kinda hard to stop smelling. Showed high susceptibility to botrytis stem rot.
Aside from the Yuck Mouth and Tropaya males which took on botrytis, everything else stood up well in the PNW outdoors. Had an especially rainy close to the season too.
NOTE: I have three other listings which these same male genetics were crossed into: Death Bubba clones (2016 karma cup cut), GSC clones (forum cut), and 3 selected Afghani Lemon Haze (for berry/candy terps) females from a seed population of 250.
