Newbie help finding seeds please!


Best Answer BlackFatalii, 11 January 2019 - 07:26 PM

I want one that has very mild spice like maybe 1000-1500 scoville that I can eat fresh or in a salad or grilled. Also looking for a sweet pepper variety for the same reasons. Preferably something with a fairly thick flesh and good size like that of a bell pepper. 

 

For a mild pepper to put on salads, something like Aji Fantasy might be a good choice. It is quite sweet tasting and typically about half as hot as a Jalapeno or even less. A very mild pepper.

 

For a large bell type pepper, I think Tekne Dolmasi is really good. It is a Turkish stuffing pepper. Sweet, and gets even sweeter when cooked. It makes really tasty stuffed peppers. Trent has seeds on his site: https://lawrenceprod...s-tekne-dolmasi

 

Here are some other fine seed vendors that I can recommend, listed in alphabetical order:

 

Hippy Seed Co.https://thehippyseedcompany.com/shop/

 

Midwest Chileheadshttps://www.midwestchileheads.com/

 

Pepperloverhttps://pepperlover.com/

 

Peppers by Mailhttp://www.peppersby...category/seeds/

 

White Hot Peppershttps://www.whitehot...ll-pepper-seeds

 

You can find more good seed vendors here in the Vendor Vault as well.

 

 

with no idea what all of those peppers are like I wouldnt know which ones to get.

 

It is hard to be sure whether you will like a particular variety until you actually try it. You can read the description on the vendors site to try and get an impression of what it is like. You can find pod reviews for many varieties on YouTube. And you can look up comments here on THP as well. Then pick the varieties that appeal to you the most and grow them out. Figuring out which varietes you like the most is kind of a trial and error process. The key is just to enjoy the process of discovery!  :)

I am interested in growing some peppers this season and came here to find some help. Im looking for the best place to buy seeds for delivery in the US more specifically Florida. Also looking for a couple varieties. Good strong hearty growers that do well in large pots and can handle Florida heat and climate. I want one that has very mild spice like maybe 1000-1500 scoville that I can eat fresh or in a salad or grilled. Also looking for a sweet pepper variety for the same reasons. Preferably something with a fairly thick flesh and good size like that of a bell pepper. Maybe some place that sells a beginner package of several varieties maybe? Thanks!

i don't think there are many in the 1k range.

it is either sweet very little heat (sounds like you want a bell pepper there. any variety is fine)

or jalapeno level heat 3k+

maybe one of the larger numex variety would be good(like hatch green chiles)

 

i have mulato isleno which is a poblano type it is large and not too hot imo

i have biquinho it is small but very productive

 

could also just order some plants. tricked you, habanada, brazilian starfish might be interesting to you.

Try some New Mexico varieties. There are many that are in the mild ranges that you are looking for, including the NuMex 6-4 and Joe E. Parker varieties.

Pasillas are close to that heat level and have some good flavor to them.

I like free stuff. I will likely buy from them. They were kind enough to respond to my very vague email asking for help. Maybe I get lucky and get some free stuff as well! I live on the space coast of Florida. I love it up here!

So I ordered Mulato isleno from juanitos and from WHP I got monkey face red and yellow, habanada and cap 455. Im thinking I still would like to try aji fantasy from recommendations above and maybe something else but that should be enough to fill the patio/garden. Unless there is a must have variety Im leaving out? You all rock. Thanks so much.
