I got a candy crush jawbreaker the size of a pencil eraser tip 2 years ago. It's grown to a half dollar size and seven babies later, they've only been bright orange. Except now I see this little guy with green coloration finally, and a lot of it! In your experiences do jawbreakers develop coloration over time or does it tend to be more of a trait that either shows up or not? I'm still hoping to see the mom get color with age but nothing yet.


For reference this is the grandma from the person I got the jawbreaker from so I know for sure the traits are there.
