  * All our African Red seed is from our 2013 grow of 120 plants. At mid season the plants were culled  leaving 60 plants to bloom. At mid bloom, 30 plants were selected for our seed stock and the remaining plants were topped, leaving only the best producing and earliest maturing plants to open pollinate and set seed.
