    wanted WTB/WTT Fresh peppers: any variety!

    I'm putting together a "tasting journal" of peppers, so I'm interested in trying all sorts of different types of peppers. Whatever you may have.   In exchange, I can pay cash or trade seeds.   I have the following seeds to trade:   BTR Scorpion (open pollinated) Sugar Rush Peach (open...

    Roughrider?

    Recently made (yet another) seed order from White Hot Peppers and received quite a few bonus seed packs. Among them was BBG7 Roughrider Chocolate. The only place I've seen this for sale is Texas Hot Peppers, but there is no description there. Curious about this pepper. Anyone have more info...

    seeds No more small lots of seed permits?

    I applied for a small lots of seed permit and got a very hard to understand, automated response a few days later. Basically stated that it's not legal to receive Capsicum seeds from the requested countries. I figured I'd try applying again, listing fewer countries, but I started poking around...

    seeds What traits do you look for when choosing plants for seeds and crossing?

    Asking because I ended up planting growing a lot (half a dozen which is a lot for me) of Primo x Purple Bhut plants this year. I didn't plan to keep so many, but these plants are just so vigorous and beautiful. But since they are F3, no two plants are the same. Some are have purple/green leaves...

    seeds Low germination rates from a particular vendor

    This year I started seeds purchased from three vendors. I started seeds in Hydrofarm plugs on a heat mat set at 82F. Within 35 days, I got good germination rates (60-100%) from two vendors, and these were mostly superhot and very hot C. chinense seeds.   I purchased 7 varieties of C. annum and 2...

    hydroponic Outdoor hydroponics recommendations?

    Had a productive hot sauce season last year from 12 plants plus farmers market Fresno peppers. In 2020, I'd like to increase output and reduce the Fresno content, so I'm hoping to grow about 25-35 plants.   My problem is space. I've only got two small areas to grow. One is about 50 sq ft, and...

    Ropey slimy snotty brine

    Just finished a month of a hot sauce ferment containing peppers, garlic, carrots, and onions. I tried an experiment with this one and added a few milligrams of kefir starter. The ferment had zero mold, smells good but not as lacto-funky as usual, and the brine was slightly cloudy, nothing...

    Early varieties?

    I'm in a place with a long growing season (usually fewer than 3 frosts per year, often we have none). We usually have an Indian summer where daily highs don't drop into the 60's until November. It's a great climate, but I've got no space to put plants for a full day of sunlight. Peppers grow...

    bottles-jars Sterilizing polypropylene bottle caps

    I have a bunch of ferments going and I want to package some small bottles of hot sauce for gifts. I'd like the bottles to be stored at room temperature. Final pH will be less than 3.0.   I'm looking to buy these bottles/caps.   Planning to fill the bottles with sauce and then steam in a pressure...

    pics Bohica Pepper Hut

    Several months ago my wife purchased me three months of super hot Pepper shipments from Bohica Pepper Hut and I thought Id share my thoughts on it after the first shipment. Peppers arrived by USPS packed nicely and included some Bohica Pepper Hut stickers. In the pic of peppers on the plate...

    Greetings from California

    Hi, my name is Geoffrey and I've got a capsaicin fixation.    I've grown a bunch of different varieties of peppers on and off for the last 12 years to varying degrees of (generally low) success. This year I've got my healthiest looking plants yet, but I'm growing in a small space, so there are...
