Not sure if this is the right place to start this thread so I apologise if it's not where it should be. I think you will all agree that if you have been following the P. Dreadie select glog we have done Erin proud and his select bonnet will continue to flourish. For 2017 I would like to ask if anyone has tucked away in their seed box any of Scotch Bonnet Steve's SB Yellow or know of a vendor that has any. My notes say I received in 2012 a seed packet from a site in Switzerland but they no longer exist and I don't have them now. I didn't know Steve but I understand he named many varieties besides his Yellow SB. If enough seed can be sourced I am sure others would support me by growing out this variety ensuring Steve isn't forgotten in the chilli world

Thank you

Jason good to hear from you. I am still waiting to receive the SBS seeds from Smoke C2C he has been on jury service but hopes to post them tomorrow along with a variety from Grenada. .... managed to find 3 SBS seeds from an old Swiss chili site ... chile-peppers.ch ... they have been in the propergator since the 7th January but no sign of life yet... I doubt they are viable but I have to try

... as for the Bonnet x Bell I grew a yellow variety a few years ago ... seed was from Vlad (Rainbow Chillies) nice conical shape but with very little heat ... I shall see if I can find a photograph

Thanks Fabrizio such a shame that he stopped selling ... I have been reading as much as possible on trying to germinate old seed ... Patience will probably be the answer

Good luck for your 2017 season

Hey Mate did you have any luck getting hold of some of Steves SBS Scotch Bonnet Yellow seeds? Just stumbled across your post and havent been too active on here for a while.

I had a look thru my SBS seed collection that he sent me and have 3 seeds sitting there. Your most welcome to them specially if its for a growout to keep his varieties going.

The Man was a bloody legend and will always remember him, his rockin varieties and Area 51  :cool:

Micca ... Smoke from C2C chilli forum sent me some seed but they were old, unviable and failed to germinate. I would be truly grateful if I could have the seeds as it would be a shame to let his SB variety disappear. Will send you a PM

Hi Micca, nice to see ya! And thank you John for your attempts to keep these important varieties going.

A bit of PepperHead history. Some of these early icons of pepper lore got their start at GW Hot Pepper Forum (Some of which can be viewed here.> WaybackMachine We were a rollicking group that fell to Spikes wrath and were Disneyed by the owner/webmaster Robert Stewart (AKA Spike Hernandez) and migrated to the now defunct MSN Forums. There we picked up our moniker of Rogue's when one member bragged to his wife that we were banned from posting and she replied, "You and your friends were banned from posting on a garden forum? Yea, you're a bunch of rogues!" In 2004 many of us met at Open Fields in Indiana where below pix were taken. MSN closed it's forum doors in 2008 and one of the Rogues who works in CA as an IT specialist started the Coast2Coast Pepper Forum that while it's had it's ups & downs in postings over the years is still frequented by some. We chose C2C because we shared seeds and advice just like here.

Paul thanks for sharing ... really interesting to read "chilli history" and put a face to a picture... you must have had some great times together ... rogues you truely were. Beth's Foodarama SB chilli still grown in both red and yellow variations but unbelievable to read that the original seed originated way back in 2006

Fingers crossed for the SBS

A massive "thank you" to Micca for sending me some SBS seed which arrived this morning. I will take great care in their germination... fingers crossed may be a bit late to fully mature but I can always bring them back into the grow tents

I hope at the end of the season to send seed to those that wish to carry on Scotch Bonnet Steve's memory and ensure his varieties are not lost
