Starting the chile year

Happy New Year!

The start of a new chile pepper year! Some of us are more enthusiastic than others :-)

Getting the seeds. Ready to be planted.

It's great to have some help.

I realize that I can reuse the same picture every year. It looks the same. But anyway, these are the ones I started this year.

In total 17 chile varieties. I don't expect all them to make it, since some seeds are quite old. The oldest ones are 12 years old.
  • Malagueta small Salvador 2001
  • Cheiro Recife 2001
  • Long chocolate habanero
  • Peru Yellow '02
  • Patricias
  • CAP 1153 / 96
  • Chilipiquin - Manor
  • Timplin - Bird pepper
  • Goatsweed '03
  • Goat '06
  • Cumari (Salvador) 2006
  • PI 441624 Porta da rua, Aji Yuquitania
  • Dedo de moca
  • Another small rocoto
  • Pequin from Ischia
  • Indian frutescens
  • Amarillear

More about this later! Wishing you all a good start of the new year!
