Of the peppers, 90% of the Shattahs (2016 gift) came out swinging and begging for nitrogen. (One looks more like a Scotch Bonnet; I'm looking forward to finding out what it really is.)
The 100% non-MoA Scotch Bonnets (2016 mine) are a mixed bag. Some are SuperPlants, some are Jimmy Olsens.
And five crops didn't germinate at all. (Four gifts and one mine from 2015.)

My most vigorous pre-transplant pepper this year is Pepperoncini Greek Golden (from the same seeds that I don't think sprouted last year). I'm pretty surprised, but pleased.
My most vigorous overseeded germinator this year (a tomato) is my Jim Dandy cross (which I liked to think of as Butterscotch Bush the last generation I grew it; not sure if that'll stick, yet; before, the plant was the shape of a giant tumbleweed, I think it was multiflora, or almost, and some fruits tasted a lot like butterscotch ice cream syrup; it was a prolific small yellow nippled cherry that grew vigorously in compacted soil). While the pre-transplant seedlings aren't *growing* as quickly as some, it sure has a lot of plants that sprouted. Usually only a certain number of tomatoes (granted a high number) will sprout in a cell at a time (and the others will wait for plants to be thinned or to die before sprouting), but this one is packed. The last time I tried to grow these same seeds (a few years ago) not one sprouted, though! Kind of odd, but awesome that they're sprouting so numerously now. Maybe it's because I froze them (dry) first, this time, or maybe the greenhouse temperatures were better for it this year than before. Or maybe they needed to be aged, heh, heh.

these come to mind.....
and others …..
I was a little worried about the Sugary Hybrid F2 that I'm growing. The first flowers didn't polinate so I thought the they were sterile. I was considering pulling them but today I noticed 3 little tomatoes on 1 of the plants so that eases my mind a bit. My second Sugary F2 still hasn't produced a tomato yet; lots of flowers, though.
