38 days from seeding.
A trio of my F2 Venus cross starting to bud very early. I am happy with the size and form and precocious budding so will keep my eye on these.
So far my favourites but that doesn’t mean they will taste good...
Will do another selection and pot up next week.

Oh thank you for posting Teresa! They look great, nice photos, I am so interested in all of the subtle differences between them. I am excited to see them bloom and fruit and show their full potential

This group are my favourites so far. Two other trays of possibilities are still growing, not pictured. Smaller, spindly, slower... but I’ll see what they do provided I have room. I don’t want to crowd the better ones limping the others along so will pot up the best to final pot and then I’ll know how much space is left for the runners up and cull the worst of them.

They look great especially with the one showing yellow flowers that want to peak through. I'm really interested in your project for growing in the opposite season - summer.

Ha, I've never thought of growing "indoors" in summer. My house actually looks normal for a few months until harvest comes in. Then the overwintering process begins and its seed starting time again. I'm really enjoying the photos in this thread. We've been having some relentless, brutally cold weather for this time of year.
This is my happy place!


Your plants are "amazingly" robust for being just over a month old. I started 4 varieties of micros last week. Nothing is sterile yet so I used the paper towel method , and the seeds really stuck royally to the brand of paper towel. They're struggling after being transplanted, and the probability favors one micro from the survivors, but it's too soon to tell. I'll just drool over your bounty for the rest.

Thanks Barb and GT
We are having fun with them, two early bloomers ties for earliest to flower one from the Venus cross and one from the gold pearl cross. Looking forward to some little fruits, could be all sorts of colours
