    chinense Habanero's Designation of Origin Raises Questions

    Interesting short article on protection of "habanero" "On June 4, 2010, the states of Yucatán, Campeche and Quintana Roo were awarded a Denominación de Origen for the habanero variety of chile pepper by The Mexican Institute of Industrial Property (IMPI) of the Ministry of Economy. Thus the...

    wanted Looking for chilaca seeds other than pasilla bajio

    I've grown some chilacas in the past that seemed hotter, more flavorful and more productive than the usual pasilla bajio type. I was hoping to compare a few different varieties but these days it seems the pasilla bajio is about the only ones you can easily find without a trip to Mexico. So...

    seeds When do you finish planting chile seeds?

    I'm surprised how many people(Northern hemisphere) still haven't started all their chinenses, so I thought I'd put the question out there again. When do you start (and finish) planting your seeds? I start most of my chinenses and pubescens in January, most annuums in February, and tomatoes and...

    Too funny, Reimerseeds complains about Seeds-by size

    Both Reimerseeds and Seeds-by-size have been known to be terrible seeds suppliers and I remember someone recently suggesting that they were the same company so I checked into it. After reading this complaint from Reimers about Seeds-by-size I really doubt it. If you know anything about...

    This year I have a lot of different giant vegetable varieties I want to grow. So far I have seeds from: a couple types of large tomato, some giant pumpkins, giant gourds, tall corn, and a few large types of peppers. Many of these I received in trades or as gifts so I haven't tried most yet...

    Purple C. chinense?

    Has anyone heard of a chinense with purple pods? I've heard of the purple habanero but have never seen pics of purple pods. The closest I've seen is the Bode Roxa but it seems like kind of an off purple. Anybody know of any other types?

    Fastest, best producing brown C. chinense?

    I've grown many different brown chinenses over the years and they always seem to start slow for me. Does anyone have a variety that grows and produces quickly? or do you have a favorite for flavor or heat? I know the answer for most is Douglah;) but personally I can't decide which one I like...
