Jo Jo Rizzo, his original beans

Postby gnome » Sat Apr 29, 2017 6:11 pm

a discussion on another forum about jojo
someone mentioned in passing they were gifted a pack of his seeds from a friend of a fried
and they've been sitting in his seed vault for years now.....
he didn't seem to want to pop any of the beans
I contacted him asap
told him I'd be glad to work these old beans for him
I now have them :mrgreen:
seeds were taken out of the original pak by the looks of it
in a sharpie pen all it said on the bag was Jojo mix.
I dunno, may have been the original bag, not sure how JJ released his beans back then.

after many hours of talking and searching the net for any scraps of info
I know JJ released his gears for a while,
1 of them was called elite mix,
this is exciting because it means I may have a variety of his work
like crystal locomotive, blowfish, chocolate trip, aloha white widow trip etc etc.

someone sent me a list of his creations , I'm sure there's more.
Venomberry (Ie Venomberry F2)
Blowfish
Chocolate Trip
Trainwreck
The Purp.

from 5seeds I have 1M and 2FMs
the 2 ladies are going 12/12 in a few days
both have unique complex aromas
BUT
the stem rub on 1 gal is a smell that something Ive never exp. before
very pungent, a whiff of sweet but mostly on the dark side is the way i can describe it.
the most interesting thing about the smell is after 3-5sec. the aroma intensifies to a powerful, pungent, nose tickling aroma.
the 2 gals have a great structure and look to good producers.
I'll get pics soon

keyplay worked with jojo and collaborated with him on many a project.
and many of their gear has JJs genetics in the mix
maybe keyplay will chime in on this discussion and enlighten us more
or anyone having run his gear.

btw
thinking on it,
going by the smell and to try and match it to the short list of crosses above a
I'd say venomberry would be a match :mrgreen:

I just won motorbreath #15 in an auction from you I believe, pretty pumped to get her and run it. I'm finally putting myself out here a little after yrs of silence. Good to be here with some winners, Keep up the good work!

the 2 Jo ladies hit 12/12 12-14 days ago,
started seeing the beginnings of future colas 4ish days ago,
by 3rd week on is when the pics start coming
I'm really super excited at the thought of running these
knowing the lineage and legacy in these genetics
for me one of most intriguing Xs I believe jojo was involved in
with GGG is purple elephant,
i'm sure there's more exciting Xs joJo's created but the PE has yanked my chain since I saw it lol
maybe because it's the only jojo X Ive seen pics of?? :mrgreen:

Hey Gnome- you ever heard of a strain called Purple Gnome ? I was told it had the PE as one of the parents, can't recall what it was crossed with. It came from a NorCal breeder I know on another forum. I haven't ran the seeds yet. I'm sure it'll be fire I'm hoping.

well were around 45ish days and getting close to chop,

the two jo's are very similar in structure making me think the are of the same cross, diff phenos.
the main diff is jo #1 is much denser

tester nugs @30-35 days shows very good above average potency
taste s very nice also.

happy 4th everyone! :mrgreen:
