In Topic: Labeled Scotch Bonnet

Not necessarily .... some bonnets are elongated, wrinkly, bumpy, flat and pear shaped but those pods in your photograph have a good bonnet shape ... it will be the heat and taste that will be the deciding factor

100% correct. "Foodarama" and "Beth Boyd" Scotch Bonnets are one and the same. Used to be, anyway lol

Unrelated, but...... as far as I know, Allen Boatman has never called "his" Bonnet "True Form." I've talked to him on the phone about it a few times. He called "his" Bonnet the "T.J.S.B." for "True Jamaican Scotch Bonnet." Seeds/pods were originally given to him by a Jamaican businessman in Florida (I want to say Ft. Lauderdale, if I'm not mistaken), years and years ago.

I've also seen people posting that "TFM" stands for "True Form," which is also false. "TFM," which we should ALL know by now ;) , stands for Trenton Farmer's Market, and the pods were originally "discovered," and seeds distributed, by a guy named Mark, in New Jersey, USA.

I know I've posted about this before, so sorry if I'm repeating myself :cheers:
(Bike808 knows what I'm talking about :) )

Mike you are spot on and I maybe am responsible for quoting true form ... in relation to TFM. I questioned Peter - Semillas many years ago when on his site he was selling SB seed labelled as TFM I asked him was this Trenton Farmers Market and he replied no - he said true form seed that he had been given from a friend in the US and I assumed maybe from Allen Boatman as the photograph on Peters site looked like his

We have spoken about this before and I am sure it will continue to be a debate .... putting Allens, Beth Boyds and Foodarama together could we tell the difference...similar yes but for me Allens stands out and I am happy to say the original true form prior to Steve McQueen, contacting the Jamaican Ministry of Agriculture, negotiating and finally obtaining seed of what we all know now as MoA Yellow

Worried that Allens Bonnet could be lost as I seemed to be the only one growing the variety I sent seed to Justin White who last season grew it out and placed the variety on his web site. Refreshing to read on the glogs that others have bought this variety and are growing it this season

The earliest I could find any information on Trenton Farmers Market was from a post on the pepper forum C2C November 2008 by Potawie who mentions Mark from Lawenceville New Jersey ... really pleased that others enjoy this variety
