Have @ least a couple dozen pods set on my rocopica plant. Really looking forward to trying these- going to need a bunch they sure are tiny
synclinorium said:Digging up this thread again, I had a 'Most prolific chacoense' (bought it off pepperlover a while back, doesn't seem to be there anymore?) tucked away in a nondescript spot. Honestly I forgot about it, holy hell did it get big. It was so slow last year I wasn't expecting anything. Normally I cut plants back when I bring them inside, but since it has so many unripe pods I'm just going to wait and see.
Also the flowers are itty bitty.
I have a couple hundred rocopica seeds from the plant pictured above if you need any drop me a PM.wildseed57 said:I've been looking for the more original shaped Rocopica which was thought to be a natural cross of cardenasii x rocoto or was it the other way around which I got from Joepepperhead at Rocoto.com which looks like he no longer gives out any seed.
Anyway The pods were much smaller compared to some and more round with a nice flavor which I think would make a great sauce if a person had enough plants like a few hundred of them.
Has a true C. cardenasii been found yet?? I know that there was some cardenasii that turned out to be eximiums I would love a few seeds of it, but I think it will take some one going down to Peru and finding a true cardenasii. Also I think there is one that Nigel talked about that was a new discovery, but I just can't remember what its name was.
Another one I would really like to grow is C. flexuosum maybe I can beg a few seeds of some HINT HINT. Anyway I think it will be a fun season.
