Re: Seedling 24JU23


Bob, very very nice! 
On suggestions for the cross, i gotta throw a vote in.  I've had very good results from Wintry Sky. Its one of my favorites, grows good here w/ stocky plants.  Fertility with it has been exceptional   Makes lots of pollen and makes big healthy pods.  I harvested on average 4 pods on each stalk this year. You might have seen the SA seedling from it I posted this spring. I back crossed it to wintry sky this year and it took, which has me very excited.
I used Mythology a few years back and have logged that there were several crosses that produced seeds.  But to my knowledge I have no record of any seedlings from it. I did lose a few labels, but haven't seen any noid that look like the cross. Still have hopes as some haven't bloomed yet.  I do have a concern Mythology would narrow the falls, but the beards are great. 
Loving your seedlings and goals!  Thanks for posting these. :).

The photo on the left is seedling 99AH13 a cross between Speed Limit X Twice Thrilling


The second photo is the result of crossing  Electric Shock to seedling 99AH13.  My thought was wouldn't 99AH13 look better with a dark beard and dark horn.  The result was seedling 24JU23.  I believe the next progression will be improve the branching and truely make it a dark top, crossing it with Crowned Heads or even a newer or a later edition of one of the great dark tops currently on the market.  Stay tuned.
