An instance of SCP-1255 subsequent to containment.

Item #: SCP-1255

Object Class: Euclid

Special Containment Procedures: All instances of SCP-1255 are to be preserved in an airtight container and kept in a freezer unit maintained at a temperature of -17°C. All containers storing SCP-1255 instances must be clearly labeled that they are not for consumption. In the event personnel are found to have consumed SCP-1255, medical staff should be immediately contacted for an emergency expulsion of stomach contents to prevent conversion into SCP-1255-1.

There are currently 9 3 instances of SCP-1255-1 in containment. Live instances of SCP-1255-1 should be contained at Site-06-3 in a standard 5x7 m containment chamber with a heat lamp and are to be inspected bi-monthly for instances of SCP-1255. Instances of SCP-1255-1 are to be provided two liters of water bi-weekly. Testing of SCP-1255-1 instances must be approved by Dr. Tapp.

Investigation into the Group of Interest "Dawn Farm and Ranch" is currently ongoing.

Description: SCP-1255 is a species of Vitis Vinifera1 genetically similar to the Red Globe variation. Instances of SCP-1255 are often reddish-pink in color and contain microscopic seeds.

Consumption of SCP-1255 will cause the subject (herein referred to as SCP-1255-1) to experience a series of physical and mental changes, otherwise referred to as the "growth cycle"2. Upon an MRI scan of an SCP-1255-1 instance, it has been discovered that the seeds within SCP-1255 will become attached to the outer tissue of the stomach wall upon consumption. The seeds will emit an unknown acidic substance, breaking down stomach fibers enough not to harm SCP-1255-1 and for the seed to exit the stomach and enter the bloodstream. SCP-1255 possesses a gene that allows it to trick the white blood cells into allowing its seeds to travel through the bloodstream as a non-foreign object. SCP-1255 seeds will travel through the veins of SCP-1255-1 until it reaches the brain. SCP-1255 will sprout within the brain of SCP-1255-1, altering the memories and behavior of their host in order to aid in the spread and survival of SCP-1255. SCP-1255-1 will experience these changes over a period of time ranging between one week to one month. The growth cycle occurs over the following stages:

  • Stage 03: SCP-1255-1 report symptoms of nausea and head aches.
  • Stage 1: SCP-1255-1 will feel a compulsion to seek out the nearest light source available4. SCP-1255-1's veins will become more visible on the skin and will become dark green in color.
  • Stage 2: SCP-1255-1 will enter a catatonic state under the light source. SCP-1255-1's veins will grow out of SCP-1255-1's skin in the form of thick, waxy vines. These vines will grow around instances of SCP-1255-1. SCP-1255-1 will no longer require energy from food and rather gain energy from photosynthesis. In addition, the fingernails of SCP-1255-1 will mutate into a thin wood. The fingernails will begin growing at 100-1000 times the rate of normal human fingernails, capable of growing up to 3.0 meters per day.
  • Stage 3: The vines produced by SCP-1255-1 will produce green, bud-like flowers.
  • Stage 45: The flowers will grow into instances of SCP-1255.
  • Stage 5: Once at least 1 kilogram of SCP-1255 have reached fruition, SCP-1255-1 will regain consciousness and begin harvesting the SCP-1255 instances. SCP-1255-1's fingernails will have grown into a basket shape and is used to hold the SCP-1255 instances.
  • Stage 6: After every instance of SCP-1255 has been harvested, the vines surrounding SCP-1255-1 will retract back into the body of SCP-1255-1 and will return to a healthy blue color. The fingernails will also return to healthy human fingernails and will grow at the normal rate once again.

After a growth cycle is completed, SCP-1255-1 will then attempt to convince any nearby subjects to consume SCP-1255. If no one is nearby SCP-1255-1 while distributing SCP-1255, then SCP-1255-1 will leave the basket of SCP-1255 at a doorstep for someone to discover. When provided with paper, SCP-1255-1 has been found to write the following note:

Hello! I recently moved in several blocks down and I wanted to introduce myself to you. You weren't home at the time I came by, so I decided to leave my gift at your doorstep. I grew it myself!

Sincerely, [NAME]6 Dawn on 132 Raisin Drive7

When there are no remaining instances of SCP-1255 left to distribute, SCP-1255-1 will re-enter the growth cycle.

SCP-1255-1 usually have a life expectancy of less than one year. Upon expiration, SCP-1255-1 will decompose at 10 times the rate of a normal human cadaver, leaving vines of SCP-1255 in the remains.


The post card discovered upon recovery.

Addendum 1255.1: SCP-1255 was first discovered in ██████, California after reports of a family of "human-plant hybrids" were spotted in a local residence resulted in the dispatch of MTF Theta-4 (Gardeners). Five instances of SCP-1255-1 in the stage 4 phase of the growth cycle were found in the backyard of the location. The subjects were identified as the Rivera family, including one adult male, one adult female, two adolescent males, and one juvenile female.

During an inspection of the residence, a basket containing SCP-1255 was found in the kitchen of the building. MTF Theta-6 had quickly matched the SCP-1255 instances to the fruit growing on several of the SCP-1255-1 instances. A postcard was discovered nearby the basket. Written in cursive on the front is "Dawn Farm and Ranch". The back of the note states the following:


Out of the nearby homes in the area, your residence was selected as the first to enjoy a sample basket of our newest, juiciest, red grape crop! We hope you enjoy the first of our new grape crop as much as we do, since you are the first to get a taste!
