Breeding Vegetables | California Bryan – Gen 5

Breeding Vegetables | California Bryan - Gen 5

This is the next generation of my pepper plant dehybridization project. It’s a very prolific Santa Fe type pepper of mild heat somewhere between 300-500 Scoville (best guess). Peppers are right at 3″, start at cream-lime, then a vibrant orange and finally, a bright red. It’s weird ’cause it seems to be only one of those colors vs noticeably transitioning along the color scale. I really like the taste of these and am quite proud of how it’s going so far. :O)

Hydroponic Gardening & More with Brent


What do you think?


  1. Beautiful peppers Brent. Love the name too. I just finished my first batch of microgreens done your way and as expected the results were amazing. I call them CAB Greens. (Central Arkansas Brent). I guess you can give microgreens a name too right?

  2. 500 scoville is absolutely perfect for this Greek guy mate !! Perfect ! .. I turn into a volcano of sweat very easily.
    What an honourable thing to do naming this after your son.
    Amazing Pepper Brent !!! 🙂🌱

  3. I really like the look of those peppers, I think it's because of the different colours as it ripen's.

    I like this new series Brent, keep up the great work.

    Thanks for sharing and as always Keep Building👍
