Re: HYB: Substance


> I'm curious what criteria are being used to determine substance.

For me it's measured against wind and hot temperatures.  Those without
substance tend to bruise quickly and then start melting in the heat and
wind.  They lose their form pretty quick. The best of those with a lot of
substance don't bruise and retain the bloom form in the heat.  In high
winds, the really good ones actually have a fall or standard simply break
off in a clean line - or if there is enough wind simply pull the whole stalk
over and still hold the bloom form undamaged.

There is a lot in between the extremes of no substance and lots of
substance.
