Topics I've Started

Found what I think is serviceberry right beside the patio we each lunch on at work.

the berries don't seem to darken to purple/blue (birds might eat them too fast)

But some were definitely a darkening red. a few little seeds inside.

I tried one and didn't die, cramps, vomit, etc.

can't for the life of me remember if it has the flowers and fall foliage. I eat next to it all the time.

any specific way to ID?




New Year, New THP?

Welcome to 2018

There is probably not going to be a whole lot of action around here until March 1st when I'll start soaking seeds.

I was overwhelmed in 2017, starting in January was not a good idea. This year I plan to pot up the plants in stride and avoid being root bound. Starting in March and outside in buckets in the middle to end of May. I'll probably try to sell excess plants locally on CL/FB as well, instead of trying to keep every seed I sprout alive myself.


2018 Grow List so far...


7pot Cinder

PDN x Bonda

Peach Bhut-WM strain

CGN21500-WM strain


PapaDreadie SS-Good Pheno from TGCM :pray:

Aji Limo Rojo

Aji Limo Amarillo

Aji Panca

Giant Red Rocoto

Peruvian Red Rocoto-OW

Yellow Brainstrain-Growdown


I'm really struggling to decide if I should grow Aji Amarillo, Big Red Rocoto's, and maybe even Panca now that I found frozen amarillos/rocotos and panca paste at the store now. And the amarillos and rocoto's take soo long to ripen...

I'd like to fit in Aji Dulce, Aji Arnaucho, cgn23209, SugarRush Peach and Trepadeira do Werner, but I don't know. 


I've got enough BahaGoats in the freezer to last me I think. I actually might have enough Amarillos too now that I think of it.

I'm growing cgn21500 just to finally get it off my bucket list. I hope its good.

The more I type, the more bummed i get that i can't grow all these...


ISO recipe-Green Baccatum Sauce or Sweet Pickled Bac. rings

So I picked the green Amarillos and Pacay before frost comes.

now what do I do with them?

i don't have a pH meter yet. any idea if they'd be good sweet-pickled in the fridge?

green sauce?

garlic, lime, onion? ACV or White vinegar?

Amarillo poppers?


Thanks for your suggestions in advance.

Aji Panca = Dried Aji Colorado

Aji Panca is Dried Aji Colorado?


I haven't found a local source of panca paste yet. i don't really want to spend like $8 bucks+shipping.

If I bought some Aji Colorado seeds from Peter at Semillas could I make my own paste?

are the pods smoked or just dried?

Would be Dehydrator suffice?

Can I go straight from Colorado Pod to Panca Paste without the drying step?


Thanks people!
