First-time customer here. I ordered a SFRB. It didnt ship as soon as I expected, so it arrived while i was out of town. When I got back it was all still fresh and packed as well as any person reasonably could. I'm very satisfied, cant wait until my next purchase. 


And the fact that he sent out a survey asking us ( his customers) for feedback regarding next year's crop is pretty impressive.

Haha, no... Not at all. I was just heckling/gently ribbing the guy who always advises ppl to source seeds from local mercado while visiting Xalapa....

I got my BBM seeds directly from Primo's Peppers. https://www.primospe...aka-bbm-seeds-f


Oops, That went right over my head.

If you, or someone you know, goes to Löuìsîaña, ask them to buy you some Big Black Mama pods at a local mercado.


Is it actually popular? That's crazy, I always assumed that BBM was only popular amongst hobbyists. That'd be pretty cool if the local population are eating non-traditional peppers

C. frutescens grows more compact than C. annuum. They typically peak at around 4 ft tall and though they only have one flower per node, will produce plenty. The most surefire way to tell is to look at the flower, where it has a greenish corolla similar to a bacatum flower, with pods usually oval and pointed straight up (think birds eye).


Yes, as you noticed there are also Annuum varieties that share some of these characteristics. There are also people that say that Frutescens and Bacatum should be classified as subspecies of annuum.
