For anyone interested, I heard from Rick. This is the fulvic acid he uses:

Here's a shot of my PDNxBMJ, taken 181013:

Another shot of the same plant taken a couple of days earlier on 181011:

I'm trying to OW this plant.   Some of the harvested pods from this plant are in the upper left of this post

 

Note the ginger in the small pot just to the right.

Thanks, Scott. PM sent.

Beautiful pods. Great to see you back, Stefan, and good growing in 2019.

If you think you'd be interested in some red ghosts with an interesting provenance, I have seeds for these available:

Or if you'd rather have plants, I'll have those, too, when the time comes.

In case anyone has tried the eBay link up above lately, you probably noticed it no longer works. I relisted the product with all available flavors. The new listing is here:

http://ebay.us/mgLLTm

Still get a better deal here. One pound for $20, USPS small flat rate box shipping included. Mix and match flavors in 1/4 pound units. It's not really practical for me to ship less than a pound until I ship enough packages to get commercial rates.

I'll honor that offer even after the SFRB price goes up to $7.90 later this month. In case you didn't know, all USPS rates are going up on Jan 27th. First class stamps will be 55¢.

Thanks for looking.

I kept seeds from the one I had. Didn't taste it though, so can't comment on flavor or heat.

This is a Sulu Adana, harvested 181016:

That's just a regular sized beer coozy.  The Sulu Adana is a great sweet pepper, very crisp and juicy.  Great to have around in the garden for a quick snack or in lieu of taking a water break.

Here's a pic of the actual product:

Left to right are hazelnut coffee, maple, vanilla orange, and cherry vanilla.  Except for the hazelnut coffee, there's not any consistent correlation between color and flavor.  Color is much more dependent on the processing parameters (rate of heating and final temperature.)

I just watched that seed germinating video. Interesting stuff, I think I'll try to adapt some of that for some of my own older seeds. Last year, Rick (stickman) said something about using fulvic acid to stimulate germination, but I haven't found a good source for that, yet.

Taking a time jump back to the present, I harvested this little handful of tepins yesterday:

20755b5.jpg

 

This has been an interesting plant.  Mike (capsidadburn) sent me the seeds a few years ago.  This plant was started in 2017.  I think it never made it out of a 3.5" square pot that first year, but I did manage to OW it.  Last year, I potted it up to a larger pot, and it was off to the races. 

 

What has been interesting is that the original growth bore all the smaller pods above (the smallest dried ones aren't much bigger than a large grain of rice.)  But the plant put out new growth from right at ground level.  This new growth grew extremely vigorously and bore the larger pods pictured above (about the size of a large English pea.) 

 

I thought some random seed must have gotten into the pot and germinated alongside the original plant, but I poked around the base and the new growth is coming from the same main stem as the old.  Flavor and heat are about the same between the two pods, though the larger are bit more watery.

 

Hopefully I can keep it alive through its second winter.  I pulled all the pods I could without breaking greenery.  (The unripe ones are really stuck on tight.)

One of my yellow scorpions had an early pod that looked almost identical to that.  For me, the smooth ones are a lot easier to wash and process than the rough, bumpy ones.

Sure. The maple flavor is natural and comes from this McCormick extract:
