nothing wrong with eating a mutant..
That depends on what she looks like. I definately wouldn't bring her to meet mom. :eusa_shif

I like 'em and I think that they are cool.

i like that mutation. i wanna replicate it cause it's so f-ing cool lookin'. :bow:
it is cool looking, but, it prolly won't clone. the mutation is called rosecomb. it's caused by cleaning chemicals and petrolium based products. prolly some residue left over from cleaning.

Rosecomb, eh? Sounds familiar...the only cleaning chemical used was bleach. It's possible there was extra residue when the tray was spawned. No Lysol, but it is also possible that some alcohol came in contact. It was used to wipe the utensil the casing was applied with. Otherwise, what about excessive hydrated lime content in the 'substrate' that was actually an old casing mix?
Either way, it's not that uncommon and is harmless. It's just freaky looking!

It is interesting how only single fruits are affected, possibly due to the theory about water droplets hitting pins. Makes me think about another possible source, when the lid to the tray was cleaned and loosely fitted during pre-pinning/post-casing, water droplets formed and dripped down on the substrate. The lid might have had excess soap/bleach residue.

Definitely rosecomb, after reading the info on it. Thanks for the tip- this site really is a wealth of info. There are some prime examples in that link.
The lid might have had excess soap/bleach residue.
happy to be of service :D
yeah, the lid is usually gives me trouble too when it occurs. often i can see residue after it begins to steam up. i switched soaps once and had a lot of trouble too, but have not had any trouble since changing back.

Ive been contemplating deliberately trying to obtain a rosecomb mutation, and eventually get one where the entire cap becomes inside out gills on top, top of the cap on bottom. I know that due to the whole enough monkeys with typewriters will eventually produce the works of Shakespeare theory, that achieving that is possible. But can you clone and carry on that mutation eventually? anyways great picture.
:lol: LMAO CM!!! :lol:
andy - i played around with this a lot in my younger days. never had much luck cloning the actual mutation. mostly got lumps of gills if anything at all. some just produced regular fruits. i think it depends on where you take the cloning tissue from. the more genetically damaged and deformed the sample is..the worse the results.
however, and this is totally theory i have no recorded proof, i believe that susceptibility to the mutation can be bred into a strain. i have a malaysian isolate that is highly temperamental. it not only produces some other mutations but will rosecomb if you look at it wrong. it was taken from spores of a rosecombed parent. like i said, could just be me, but my normal isolate is no more sensitive than any cubie strain.

Especially if it's one of those chicks from the X-Men..like Halle Berry:loveeyes:
