From the pure taste, i find baccatums at least as good as chinense peppers. But chinenses peppers are my favorites, because i tend to find most baccatums leave a "soapy" taste on the tongue.
This is due to an aldehyte that some people taste and some note. It helps to cut the inner, white part...
Thanks for the tips guys.
I wonder if the result would be better wether the "mother-plant" is outside or inside.
I noticed that chinense peppers that are growing inside have a hard time to get fruits, and loose many of their flowers.
But i dont know if its because of the missing wind and...
I crossed 2 baccatums and it worked, but i tried for 2 years to cross chinense peppers without sucess.
Has anyone here sucess crossing chinense peppers and can share his method with me?
My method was:
- picking a flower that will open up soon and cut out the pollen bag.
My experience is similar to the most peoples experiences here:
+ Fast Shipping
+ Good germination Rate
+ Interesting and sometimes exclusive Varieties (got my favorite from him, a mild yellow "Datil")
+ Good Communication
- High Prices
- Not too many seeds per pack

I bought all the sweet peppers from "lindberg Figueroa", and tried to grow them.
I only had success growing "Aji Jobito", and "Aji Rosita Rojo". I heared, that some people were able to grow "Aji Llaneron".
But does anyone grew "Aji Pepon" or "Rosita Amarillo" with success?
Im looking for a pepper with the properties, that i mentioned in my thread title.
I love small hot peppers as a snack, and to prevent me from getting sick in winter.
This year i grow "CAP 691", and it a very pretty and plant with aromatic berrys, Unfortunately they have absolutely now...
I bought some seeds of Stuffing Scotch Bonnet last year, but the fruits are smaller and way hotter than they should be, the seem crossed.
Does someone have grown this pepper, and had the correct shape and mild taste? I would love to getsome seeds then.
I have tons of other cool varieties...
I had no time yesterday, but here are the promised pictures. The plant is in a 18 liter pot:
Btw, the "Galapagos Habanero" from your seeds is also fine, and so the "Scotch Bonnet P.Dreadie" and "Cream Fatalii" are.
Sad to hear that your plants dont grow well.
My plant is fine.
At the beginning it grew slowly but now it is has a good size.
The flowering began very late. The plant has about 5 flowers now and the first flower fell off and showed the first small fruit.
I will post a picture tomorrow.
They were erect, but turned as they are getting bigger.
Im curious about this years fruits.
It took a long time for my plant to get the first flower and i wonder if it will fall off or the first fruit will set.
The important thing is that the earth is not frozen..
I would recommend to get your plants inside.
Are your plants in the ground or in pots?
If you planted them in pots you could wraps something like blankes around the pots to keep the earth warm.
