    How old is/was your oldest hot pepper plant?

    I'm just curious about how long people have kept a pepper going in the ground or in a container. I kept one C. frutescens pequin type from Mexico for 3 summers and two dried out while I was on vacation the third overwinter...even though I had someone that was supposed to water it.

    Chile Puya (or Pulla)

    Any info on Chile Ciruela (El Salvador) or Chile Guaque (El Salvador/Guatemala)??

    Just wondering if anyone has any experience with any of these chiles from El Salvador? They may be just local names for a chile with a different name in Mexico? Thanks!

    Fragrant Aji Amarillo Leaves

    Has anyone else noticed a somewhat strong smell coming from their aji amarillo leaves? I notice this on my plants when I move the leaves around while inspecting, moving, or transplanting. It is somewhat of a unique smell to me, somewhere between a poblano pod and a datura leaf. It's not a bad...
