Did you sign up for chip drop? I signed up for over a year and never got anything.

 

Been waiting a whole year, having to sign back up every 90 day or something, but I finally got another load of free mulch.

Dragon's Breath seeds became available in 2018 from chilli bob's in the UK. Several US growers have grown out a generation already, but most US seed vendors are sold out.

 

I just looked up a bell pepper seed... much smoother and looks a lot like this one. From the authentic seeds I have had in the past, they shrivel and make an evil looking seed. These seeds are smooth like bell pepper seeds. Probably fake since the seller sells "dragon breath" seeds which aren't even out yet.. like wtf.

Yes. Check the vendor vault. I think Justin at White Hot Peppers has some seed collections for sale, but you are getting too late to start from seeds now.

 

Thanks for the tip about White Dog Chiles! She'll be a great asset moving forward. I think I'll check out a fair she'll be at April 27th. Are there any good vendors for buying a large variety of seeds at once? Like a starter pack?

It is probably a little late to start superhots, but you can still start annuums from seed and get a good yield from them.

 

If you want to grow superhots, I'd suggest sourcing some plants at this point.

 

Some good sources for plants are:

 

The Chile Woman

Cross Country Nurseries

Refining Fire Chiles

Refining fire runs bare root plant sales through various groups on Facebook, and you can pick some up there pretty cheaply.

 

Good luck!

 

 

I see, dang, so it's too late now? I was worried that April would be too soon.
