Hello Michael,

I'm glad you had fun.  Your results are fun to see as well.  That is
a very subtle pink on the second one.  How bright does the ring get
and does it show up in cooler temps?
The rim is subtle and difficult to see.Hopefully as 2 year clumps it will be able to express itself more consistently and with better definition. Cooler temps?  its cooler where you are than here. Maybe if it reblooms.
What was the direction of your
cross?  COLOR BRITE as the pod parent?
Yes. The wind had beat the Mesmerizer stalks almost flat so could not do the reciprocal cross.
As for the incredible edible
seedling, I've found that some cultivars are more tasty to a variety
of varmints than others seem to be.  Deer have been inordinately
fond of Tasco intros here, e.g., and other cultivars are more prone
to chewing insects year in and year out than some of their neighbors
seem to be.  I have noticed that some with strong aromas (at least
those my own sniffer can detect easily) also tend to attract a
variety of chewing insects more than those that have little or no
pronounced odor.  Can bugs smell?

Aroma is a good  thought. Can bugs smell? oh yeah, big time. Never wear cologne or perfume when wasps are around. Never cook meat outdoors within a half a mile of yellow jackets!
