Very nice offer Dale.  Of the seeds you sent me, I have 1 Peruvian Red Rocoto, 2 Aji Limo Rojo's, 2 Aji Arnaucho growing.  I'm starting again

some Aji Oro & Aji Largo, and 2 more Peruvian Red Rocoto, hopefully I'll have 3 plants.  Looking forward to see if I can actually get some Rocoto's

to full maturity.

The Pubescens (aji largo, aji oro, and peruvian red rocoto), usually take longer to germinate compared to non Pubescens.

Glad to hear you have one Pube plant already going. That peruvian red rocoto should put off many tasty pods for you this season.

I sent your package off today. I know you only asked for one Pube variety, but I threw in 3 bulletproof Pube cultivars. I also threw in a few non Pube varieties that are prolific and delicious.

Bust out those macro shots this season for some purple flowers shots, super fuzzy foliage, and fat/juicy pods!

Thanks a ton, love surprises :D

 

Ive never grown any Pubescens before and the only ones ive tasted were red rocoto in a canned commercial product.

Definitely at least dedicate a 5 gallon+ pot to the peruvian red rocoto, but don't sleep on the other two. They will give you some very tasty pods as well.

If anyone hasn't received a "sent" e-mail yet, let me know. My mailbox as been flooded with responses, and I'm petty sure everything has been sent out as of today.

Never heard of Capsicum Pubescens before this topic.

Been doing some research and seems interesting enough to give it a try\

 

​How big do the shrubs get?

If you have any that are a tad more tolerant of the Florida heat I would love to give them a try

All i can say is WOW!!!!

 

I asked for one variety and got a couple i really wanted to try. One i had no idea where to even get the seeds. One i never even heard of before.

 

Thanks a bunch, i hope you dont mind me sharing a few with a friend in Idaho. He has a green house he can use and really needs a cold tolerant variety or two next year.

I'm glad everything arrived safely! I don't mind you sharing at all, that's one of the reasons I sent 20-30 seeds per pack of most varieties.

All right folks the Pubescens Giveaway is OVER!!!

The last of the seed packs went out today.


I hope everyone has great success with their Pubescens this year. I started a separate thread dedicated to growers of everything I sent out. Please feel free to contribute any pics of plants, seedlings, pods, comments, questions, tips, etc. in that thread.
