    baccatum Criollo Sella

    Anyone have any experience growing this Baccatum from Bolivia/Peru? I've seen it listed in a few places as a great culinary pepper; citrusy flavor, good heat level, relatively prolific.

    misc JalapenoGate

    There was definitely a boom of new home gardeners as a consequence of the pandemic. I could see the increased demand leading to cut corners and higher chances of mix-ups. No idea and no data to support if that increased demand has actually kept up enough to account for this year however. It's...

    misc Confess your food sins, cringe, and scares in these reads not fit for the table!

    Bit of a guilty pleasure in my drinking days.. Vidalia onion chopped thin, liverwurst. Smash together and heat lightly. Eaten with crackers and too much wine. We pretended it was pâté haha.

    Heyo, new grower here.

    Just started growing this year with a few cheap seed packets, and have been enjoying this quite a lot. Hoping to expand my varieties and start experimenting soon. Glad to find an interesting community here.
