Shishkaberry Preservation Run, Open-Pollination

As the title says…Shishkaberry preservation run folks!!

I picked up these Shishkaberry from non other than our very own @ShiskaberrySavior…received these beans what seems to be around 10 years ago…maybe less…maybe more…not quite sure! Lol He might be able to give us a timeframe. :wink:

Started with 30 I believe…gifted a few out to what I thought was a trusting friend who said was doing a seed increase but sadly disappeared…so now left with 19 beans to go through…a good number so I thought!

These were kept in my seed fridge inside a sealed glass container and rice…but unfortunately have had a relatively low germination rate…and what did, have been quite slow to get going…not sure the age of the beans before I got them but I’m gonna give them their best fighting chance!

Of the 19 seeds I tried to germ I’ve had 8 fully germinate and now are above soil!! :smiling_face_with_three_hearts: A few still need to shed the husk but officially it’s GAME ON!! Was hoping to do a selective breeding on these but we’re going to keep it open as not as many to play with as had planned…either way we’re going for it!

So here they are in all their glory

Enjoy the ride

Don’t mind me while I take a seat in the front row! Sounds like now was the perfect time to begin this run considering the lower germ rates. Wishing you the best of luck with getting a few more to pop up :four_leaf_clover: :peace_symbol:

The seed is probably 14/ 15 years at least .so I guess slow starters is to be expected ,I’ve got my fingers crossed they click into high gear for you.

Thanks folks!!

As we can see 5 are doing well, and 3 are lagging behind a bit…got one more seed that broke open…try to be hopeful but it’s just not looking good for that little one…

Wish I would have started these years ago but just wasn’t in the cards at the time…as they say hindsight’s always 20/20 :eyes:

Sounds interesting, I’ve seen quite a few people asking where to find this and never seen anyone have an answer so I’m sure it’ll be appreciated! I’ll be hanging out in the corner, :eyes: and not being creepy…

I grew out Shiskaberry from Barney’s Farm about 3 or 4 years ago, IDK how that one translates to this one, anyone?

I remember being hyped up about a shishkaberry almost 15 yrs ago or so…not sure if was Barney’s or another breeder…never ended up getting the seeds. From what I remember it looked suuuper greasy and frosty. Reminds me of the Dynasty Seeds carmel candy kush… Haha, my “1.5 cents”… Actually I kinda have a photographic memory and it is definitely suuuper greasy!!!
