Grub...You have left me very sad, I am fairly sure Green Giant is too long season for me. I did start one seedling awhile ago ( actually only 1 germinated), and will give it a go, but the practical side of me says now would be a good time to trade my remaining seeds for a more realistic green when ripe.
Anyone have any extra Grubs Mystery Green? It sounds earlier....

Default One for Tom

Tom,
I still have one Prue left on the vine. Last for the year.
More like a hack than a writer :wink:
Have a great season.

Grubs Mystery Green is one of the best greens I ever had.. This year I have only one plant.. and another one that is supposed to be red - last time, the batch of GMG had one red between them.. is it possible or it had to be some kind of accidental cross?

There's a "Grub's Mystery Green Red" (a red variant of GMG) that's been around for quite awhile, but not much news on it. The original GMG was an unknown cross found by Grub, likely released before being stable.


And in 2018, a "Grub's Mystery Green Orange" showed up in an online friend's garden. They shared a few seeds with me.

Seed from the Grubs Mysery Green "Orange" produced this. And it didn't taste very good.

Are those yellow shoulders?


I have three plants of GMG "Orange". A RL bicolor, a PL bicolor, and a RL black. None were very good.

Yes, the shoulders are yellow and dry. The original orange was really good.
