Recieved and picked out a few things but no last-ofs. Adding Pink Tiger, Fish Pepper, Puerto Rican Yellow, 7-Pot Bubblegum White, California Reaper, Fatalii Seeds' "Turkish Pepper" and some NuMex Lemon Spice Jalapeños.

Will send on to Mitzi tomorrow.

The train has pulled in to this station!

 

So, question:

 

I am going to Hungary this coming weekend.  Is it better to bring the box with me and post it local post once I get there OR post it in England before I leave?

 

I'm tending towards post it here before I leave because I'm scared it might cause problems at customs (don't see why it should but I would feel so guilty if it got taken off me.)

I have taken the last seeds of Manzano Orange.  Assuming I get them to germinate, I will return some seeds to the train next year.

 

There are some 7 Pot Burgundy seeds on the train (someone questioned it earlier I think.)

I have added the following:

 

1. Nebru 7 (Chinense) 2018 - ISO

2. Rocoto La Paz Rojo (Pubescens) 2018 - OP

3. Cap 334 Aji Champion (Baccatum) 2018 - OP - I took the last seeds last year so have grown it out and returning some.  Unfortunately I didn't manage to isolate any flowers so there is a chance of a cross.

4. Korean Hong Gochu (Annuum) 2017 as received by me and mine came true.

5. Ivory Coast 1 (Chinense) 2017 - seeds from pods I bought in Abidjan, Ivory Coast.  Pods were all red but I grew two plants this year and one had yellow/orange pods.  The seeds I have put in are the originals from Ivory Coast.  They are a hab type with smooth slim pointed fruits and a nice heat level.  Plants were taller than IC2 below with pods more spread out on the branches.

6. Ivory Coast 2 (Chinense) 2017 - seeds from pods bought in Man, Ivory Coast.  Both plants I grew were compact and bushy but absolutely covered with pods.  Pods are hab/bonnet type, with grooves, late season pods on one plant were kind of Trinidad Scorpion shaped.

 

I can't get to the Post Office today so will send it tomorrow.

It looks like the past year i didn't store my seeds in a really proper way, and signifcant amount of my stash got moldy... inside the ziplock bags. So i got really mad when i opened my boxes and saw the situation... Gonna try to disinfect some, see if they are still viable, and try to save the most precious ones. Lesson learned.

 

Anyway, i managed to add a few varieties to the train, couple of PepperLover's varieties, original seeds, guess they are isolated:

 

Trinidad beans red

Dwarf tepin

Aji cereza

Peach scorpion

Berry amarillo (really recommend this if you want excellent baccatum flavor with not that high, but nice heat. one of my favs from this year)

 

Kathumby black (ISO)

Rocoto La Merced (OP)

Rocoto Arequipa giant (OP)

Rocoto mini amarillo (OP)

Peru - from a local market in Hungary, the seller told me, he got the seeds from Peru. It's a chinense, the plant grows tall, it needs support or the stems break easily. Pods are realatively small (bit smaller than a cherry bomb), round, slightly elongated. When overripened, they get soft and mushy like a frutescens, very strange. And it's pretty hot!

Original Pimento de Padrón - original seeds i bought in Padrón, Spain, really recommend these if you haven't tried Padrón peppers, best fried peppers ever

 

And something different, grew giant sunflowers this year, it was really fun. Seeds from Baker Creek

 

Titan - this was the taller, more than 2,5 meters or so, with huge flower, very impressive!

Mammoth grey striped - bit smaller but still a giant, also big flower, and these produced bigger seeds for me
