The Papa’s series were bred out of Painted Mountain by seedsman Ed Schultz, also in Montana. Dave Christensen spoke very highly of this series, describing them as very uniform and brilliantly colored. We agree–they have all the great attributes of Painted Mountain, with the benefit of having single-color strains, which we’ve found makes better tortillas.
It’s absolutely stunning, on those crazy-short 4′ tall, super-early Painted Mountain-esque plants. We trialed the series on the recommendation of Brad McIntyre of McIntyre Farms because his neighbor recommended it. OP, 90 days. 70 seeds.
Seed grown by Banbury Farm in Buhl, Idaho.
