Just wondering if anybody would be interested in setting up a seed exchange within our membership?

Vlad, those ghost peppers (Bhut Jolokia) will kick your butt.

Vlad Jovanovic said:

I have a couple local heirloom sweet capsicum annuum that look pretty much like these here...https://www.google.com/search?q=kurtovska+kapija+paprika&rlz=1C...

They're pretty thick fleshy and not spicy. Great for all sorts of stuff.Salsa, pepper pastes, roasting, fresh...whatever.

And I've got a bunch of these spicy (pretty hot) yellow capsicum annuums ...http://community.theaquaponicsource.com/forum/topics/dual-root-zone...

Think of them as cayenne's slightly larger, yellow, more pissed off older brother. They're pretty darn hot, with really vigorous growing, high yielding plants...

I'd be interested in trading for some Bhut Jolokia or Naga seeds...Any takers?


I'd be interested, Vlad!  I love peppers, spice and not so spicy!  Is there a way to get a bit of both?

Why yes Jennifer, there is such a 'way to get a bit of both'...Send me 10-20 of your Ghost Pepper seeds and I'll send you a bit of what I've got. Shoot me a PM if you're up for some swapping.

Well, I hope so Bob because these Hab's just aren't cutting it anymore...

Hahaha! I mentioned naga chiles to my husband and he said NO NAGAS!  what a wimp! hehehe.

I'll see what I can talk him into. I might still see if i can negotiate some nagas ;) 

Dratz..! Well...what else 'ya got that might be interesting?

Vlad the chocolate Habs are hotter if available in your area ... Got some scotch bonnets..if interested.

managed to score some ghost last year .. so far two of the 15 are up ... may have access to another 15 seeds or so.  Also made friends with a local hot pepper grower so can definitely get access to more.

I'd be keen on some of those scotch bonnets, chocolate hab's...I don't need a lot of seed or anything (6-7 seeds of each is cool). PM me if you want to work out a trade.

This is what I have. Everything here is open-pollinated and collected from last year's harvest. Charapita is a landrace that I collected myself in the Peruvian Amazon (from a street vendor's back yard).

Bob, you should start a seed exchange group. I'd be interested if I had any seeds...let you know in a couple o' years :)

Alex, That is a wonderful idea.  i will work on that.lol

Hey Jeffrey...My man, I'd be real interested in sending you some of my C. annuum's for some of those Trinidad and Naga seeds...

I guess this might be a good time to mention things like postage costs when corresponding via snail-mail with folks internationally...Postage costs can add up if you utilize that service frequently. A really keen thing to do is use the 'old time' "Scotch-tape" trick and some pre-bought postage stamps.

If you put two layers of clear tape over the postage stamps you can re-use those stamps indefinitely. Place the first layer of tape nice and firmly over your stamps 'face', while "de-tacking" the second layer, before you place it on top of the first. Use some of the oils on your fingertips...helps that layer of tape be more easily removed later on... and cut the edges off nicely so they look good and all...remember stealth is kinda the key here. Normally, the post office will rubber-ink stamp the date over your postage stamps, thereby rendering them useless for re-use. If you carefully place two layers of transparent tape over your stamps, the person you are trading with can send them back to you. So you can take off the outer layer of tape (with the ink/date now on it) and place another fresh layer of tape over the now 'clean' and ready to be used again stamp. Back when I was a kid, heavy into underground music tape trading culture, this worked real well from Japan to Slovenia, and everyone was real good and diligent about sending peoples stamps back (except for this one asshole Croatian kid, but your always bound to get one here and there in the bunch) so the whole 'network' was basically free for those who participated, for years, and years, and years...
