I just recently acquired a few P-Dreadie seeds and am very excited to grow them this year.

 

RIP P-Dreadie

 

May we carry his spirit for many moons to come at THP.

 

:high:   RASTAFARI!!!!

Wow, thanks everyone for your wonderful outpouring of support and interest, and especially to Trident chilli for sharing that message from Erin. That really helped to fill in the gaps in his story, and gives us an intimate picture of Erin's love for Jamaica, its people, and culture.

 

Before I start sending out seeds, I need to take inventory of my P. Dreadie seeds. I'm thinking 5-6 seeds is a good amount to ensure at least one good plant for everyone, but less may be okay, and would allow more growers to join in on Erin's party. Y'all please give me some feedback on that point.

 

Yesterday I sent a FB message to Erin's wife Liz, to let her know what we are about over here on THP. Today I got this cool response:

5 - 6 is a great number if you have enough to share. I plan to use a single seed in each of my plugs in cheater tank so there are no cullings :) 

 

Thanks again!

Considering I probably don't have the history here as a lot of the other great growers that have stepped up, I'd take 1-2 seeds and pray to the germination gods.

Ronan I will have a look tonight but at the moment I only have what I would call Erin's standard P. Dreadie seed. Gary has what Erin called his "culled" or select seed which all would agree is special ... personally either way both standard and select are his seeds and an honour to have to grow out this season

Available commercially I know Meatfreak - tasty peppers NL had some but looking at his site tonight he has sold out

Thanks again everyone for the tremendous interest and show of affection for Erin and his pepper…I'm sad to say all my seeds are now gone, so please, no more requests for seeds.

 

If anyone else has true P. Dreadie seeds they would be willing to share please post about it here.

 

Erin's spirit lives on in not only in his family, his friends, his art, and his peppers, but also in his music:
