    Why a white Jalapeño ?   Just checked the orange Jalapeño ( ) that´s sold since some time. It´s anything else, but not a Jalapeño.   You may use Jalaro in it´s unripe form, that´s pale white-yellow

    chinense Albino Apocalypse Scorpion?

    @ J.H., what is the white powder at the surface of the substrate, is it mold or salt?   The picture of bleaching leaves normally indicates too hard water with too high pH, leading to chlorosis.

    chinense Albino Apocalypse Scorpion?

    In this case the plant may have developed a genetical defect and doesn´t produce chlorophyll any more or only in unsufficient quantities. If I´m right, there is no help with standard fertilizers, new soil or extra watering.   High degree albinos can only survife if they are transplanted to a...

    chinense Peruvian white habanero... regional origin within Peru?

      Limo doesn´t come from lemon, it says that the pepper grows in the province of Lima, Peru.  Aji = pepper --- Limo = from Lima Same like some Europeans are confused with Lemon Drop, thinking this must have a lemon taste, because they don´t know that lemon means only yellow.   Regarding the...

    CGN 21500 - Why do some peppers have no name?

    CGN 21500 is well known as CGN 21500, so no other name needed.   Cheiro Roxa and Fidalgo or sometimes called Fidalga Roxa have been introduced much later and I couldn´t find anything about the history of the two varieties.   When I got a number of Brazilian accessions from the  Centre for...

Import permits are valid for several...

    Community Lindberg Seed Grow

    Thanks for your infos,    so the variety has some rest of potential for heat and maybe still the original Ají Margariteño.   We had a long hot season here, so this can be the reason for some more heat than usual.   I will definitively regrow this very interesting C. chinense, one of the best Ají...

    Only one seed of my Aji margariteño sprouted and I got a small plant with a number of good developed pods. My problem is that the pods are hot, not very hot, but good heat around the placenta. Original Aji Margariteño shouldn´t show any heat. Anyone else with hot pods? Peter

    @standbyandfire, where is your cross? Can´t find any serious source selling it. I bought seeds end of 2014 from someone claiming to have your original cross and it turned out to be a standard Chocolaté Bhut Jolokia. Peter
