Three more today!

  • PI 596058 - Chuquisac (Capsicum baccatum)
  • Chiltepin Mexico (Capsicum annuum)
  • Black Cayman (Capsicum chinense)
I was surprised to see my chiltepin germinate so fast. My experience is that they take longer time. So this is either A) promising, or B) bad sign that the seeds are not pure, and therefore not really from chiltepin.

My vote and hope is option A! Promising!

The ones that I still wait for are some old chinense seeds. Maraba, cheiro de para and caronog. But also a Florida bird pepper (undomesticated annuum), a pubescens, pimenta da Neyde and goat pepper.

Well, two weeks is not that much for chile seeds to germinate. So I will stay cool!

A question to you geeks out there.
Do you keep track of when your varieties germinate, and so on? And in that case, how do you do it? I created a database some years ago, in which I log some "events", and export spreadsheets from it. If anyone is interested in the technical details, please let me know, and I can write about it and share it with you. It's based on OpenOffice / LibreOffice, so it's a cross platform solution.

Hot regards,

  1. Härligt Mats!

    Ja, en databas låter spånnande. I år har jag slarvat. Förra året gjorde jag så här.


    Om dina Pimenta Da Neyde inte kommer upp har jag fina miniplantor hemma. Du kan självklart få en. Kanske ett byte mot en chiletepin som verkar vara hopplöst för mig - kolla baa mina resultat förra året.

    FÖresten hur går edt med ZenGrown

    Ha det
