Best of luck this season! You might consider growing some Pubescens varieties, like Rocotos and Manzanos. They are supposed be a good choice for cooler climates.

I have had good results with all of these vendors:

Hopefully between the six of them you will find the varieties you are searching for. Good luck with your season!

Trinidad Scorpion Butch T. My least favorite superhot pepper. The few that I have tried all had a very strong, perfume-like floral taste that I really didn't care for. I suppose they might be OK in a sauce or used in cooking where the floralness could be masked a bit, but not eaten fresh like I did.



Those ANTEP ACI DOLMA sound tasty anyone have a link to seeds? looked at the usual places none seems to carry them :tear:



Ford's is the only vendor that I have seen selling them, but he seems to be out of stock right now. Here is the link anyway: http://www.fordsfier...Antep-aci-dolma

In Topic: Tabasco?

I don't know what that is, but it doesn't appear to be a Tabasco to me. The Tabascos I grew in 2016 had dark purple anthers on the flower and the peduncles were quite a bit longer than on the plant in your photos. The Tabasco pods had a less tapered appearance, and they didn't grow as close together as the pods in your first photo.

The method that I use is to first soften the seed case a bit with a couple drops of water, and then very carefully cut around the seam of the seed using small nail clippers. I have had good success with this method, but it is important to act quickly when helmet heads appear. If you wait too long, the cotyledons can wither inside the seed case. 


If you are having problems with helmet heads, try planting the seeds slightly deeper. An ounce of prevention and all that.
