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 willing to try one hot pepper as well

 

Bahamian Goat, yellow Scotch Bonnets, Paper Lantern Habanero, Orange Blob, Carbonero, and CGN21500 are all very tasty peppers with habanero-class heat.

If you want to give superhots I try then I would suggest the Yellow Brain Strain. Outstanding flavor and intense heat with that one.  :hell:

Super hots are not in my future any time soon but thank you for the recommendations. I will look into them.

Super hots work great for sauce.
