Semillas La Palma 2013

During the large forest fire just a year ago we lost around 2/3 of our production.

We decided to move to a more fire protected region and found a ground in a pure subtropical zone
at about 230m a.s.l.

Pepper production is in 3 greenhouses with insect repellant netting.

At the moment we grow around 3000 plants in pots from 11 liters to 35 liters

Here is the actual growing list:

And here is a slide show, all pictures taken yesterday:
About 350 are already available,
the rest as soon as we got a good number of seeds.
A few will NOT be available, because too many plants didn´t come true to type.
These are all from seeds I bought or got in trades.
Unfortunately a standard issue when you try to get new varieties.
Most of the CAP Accessions are from original seeds from the IPK institute in Germany.
They have been sawn later and mature pods are aspected around end of August.
Then we can see how many of these can be marketet.
Most of these acessions neither have a good description nor a picture and in some cases even the variety is not correct!
So new variety descriptions and pictures are my job in the next weeks.
I have some seeds from you that i bought for this year but i didn't get around to growing them so next year i will grow them.

Good luck at your new location Peter!
The seeds I got from you last year performed very well, the Tasmanian Black turned out to be quite a stunning looking plant!
Great list Peter! I see you've come to know about some varieties growing untrue abd you kicked them out. I bought some seeds from SLP shop this spring, Fatalis are growing into some Aji pepper, and all Primo Orange are growing into Big Jim Anaheim or some similiar pepper.

Seems you've sorted that out, good luck on new location :)
You are a seed bank. I am glad there are people in the world like you. Also your seeds are of a very high quality, I got 100% germination of 30 species planting two of each. Very impressive. Do you find the altitude is helping with growing at your new site?
I'll be interested to see if the Chaguanas 2 and Red Habanero De Arbol grow true.
The Chaguanas 2 ,so far seems stable.
The red tree I haven't grown out yet.

It was supposed to be an Orange tree but put out red pods.Other than smaller pods the plants were pretty much identical.
Mites killed almost all my plants last year.
They were too infested by the time I figured out what was wrong.

The Kitchen Pepper was a 7 pot SR that I grew in isolation ,that after 5 generations,it made smooth pods,lost it's bumps and some of it's heat.
I probably sent you pics before,If not Ask and I will...
Great job Peter, your greenhouses should be amazing.
Do you have any special method for sowing such a large quantity of seeds and keep them in order?
Good luck

Thanks, I do my very best!
The new location is a hit, if I knew it earlier I´d moved as early as possible.
The main problems at the altitude I grew before (720m) were too cool winters and too hot and dry summers.
At the new location we can grow all the year around and peppers are setting good pods even in winter.
I just prepared a couple of seeds that I´ll start now, aspecting crops in Dez - Jan !

@ Datil,
seeds are sown in small pods, 10-20 seeds per pod, labeled and covered with a glass plate.
After transplanting and thereafter pods are held in lines where the first pod carries the label.
If we move pods, me move one variety after the other to avoid any mix-up.
Fruits are collected in bags or boxes or pots with labels and the seed cleaning process runs with labels.
So very low chance of any mix-up
@ smokemaster
The tree habaneros are growing true, Chaguanas unfortunately doesn´t.
My line of 7pot SR is impressing, I´m quiet sure it´s the mother of Moruga as well as Brainstrain. From my point of view you cannot distinguish between Brainstrain and SR. Heat is also on top!
@ MisterNo
please check if it could be a mix-up at your location. We would have got masses of complaints if Fatalii or 7pot Primo Orange didn´t grow true, but so far nothing.
If it were a mix-up during filling (we fill large batches) 300-400 customers would have got wrong seeds, I would rule out this as well
The untrue varieties I got were from seeds I bought from abroad.
Replenish of our entire stock is done form the own master seed record. We do not use bought seeds for this.
If you mail me your order numer or just you name, I can look what I can do for you.
