#1617606 Looking for dwarf citrus plant seeds

Posted by Malarky on 05 March 2019 - 09:26 AM

Try germinating KeyLime and Kumquat seeds from grocery store fruit. they are easy to germ in paper towel with heat. just carefully cut the seed coat off with a sharp blade.


From what I've read they grow true. I guess they are not extremely hybridized like other citrus.

Sometimes you may get 2-3 plants from 1 seed. I think its called polyembrionic? but usually 1 of the plants is noticeably stronger...cull the weak ones as their genetics are not true.

Good to see you, Matt!

Can we assume your adventure to begin tomorrow?

I've been delaying my glog this year. My wife and I are pregnant and part of the deal was no peppers in 2019.

She can't stand the smell of chinense peppers and I can't fart or cut open a pod without her gagging and running to puke.


So I've got 2 giant red rocoto i overwintered. and I may start some of your NuMex peppers for the garden. I bought seeds for a Hawaiian frutescens while I was in Kona this fall and I'll probably grow those as a souvenir. but I'm sad to say that's about it this year.


Babe is due at the end of July. I'll probably just post pictures of food and the garden. Probably whiskey too


But its never too early to plan for 2020 :party:

My goal is to grow most in isolation spaced at least 50ft apart in old cow fields I have here to make sure they seeds stay true,





Why not just use some isolation netting?

yeah 50 feet isn't very far for pollinating insects.

you should just net a few plants and better yet...if you are close to your plants, you can diddle each flower as soon as it opens or give your netted plant a vigorous shake to spread the pollen.


best of luck...(not sure how stable Gourmet Jigsaw is anyway)

#1605613 Share Indoor Pubescens Experiences

Posted by Malarky on 14 January 2019 - 11:47 PM

My pubescens loved my basement.
-T12 or T8 lamps 12on/off
-Foliage Pro (weak mix)
-probably 60-65F during the winter
-fan oscillating

And I did my best to diddle every new flower with every other flower to really spread the pollen around.

#1603956 SB7J sauce ideas

Posted by Malarky on 08 January 2019 - 09:27 AM

A straight SB7J sauce sounds awesome, Malarky. I second (or third? lol) salsalady's idea. If you want to keep that SB7J flavor (or pretty close to it), I'd say to make some of AJ's purée recipe, add a little bit of onion and garlic, a dash of salt, and maybe even some roasted carrots (for sweetness). Then, thin it out with a mild vinegar (and water); like rice, white wine or champagne vinegar. Splash of agave nectar or honey. Boom. Man, I'm drooling, just thinking about that now, haha


Looking forward to pics! :cheers:

Are the pods red or yellow?

I like this! I've made AJ's puree and starting with that base sounds like a great idea.

My SB7J's were Reds from Bhuter, I believe

#1603759 SB7J sauce ideas

Posted by Malarky on 07 January 2019 - 01:13 PM

Hey all i need to clean out the freezer!

I've got about 8oz of frozen SB7J's that I'd like to make into a sauce that highlights the pepper.

I'd like it to be really hot and taste of SB7J, but I'd like it to be more than just a puree?

Use the whole 8oz of SB7J a good/bad idea?


What are your ideas?



fruit or not?

garlic/onion/shallot? all of it?


what do you think? thanks for your time
