I mentioned on another thread that I have some extra Aji Dulce seeds after buying from Southern Exposure Seed Exchange. I packaged them up into 15-seed baggies and discovered that I had about 90 spare seeds. I still have 5 packets available. Send me a D-Mail (PM) with your mailing address and I will send you a packet of the Aji Dulce seeds. I don't see any reason to waste the seeds. If I can't save seeds from the plants this year, then I will just have to order fresh seed next year anyway. I'll edit this message when the seeds are gone.

ALL GONE as of Feb 9.

UPDATE: I sprouted some of the seeds on a wet, folded, coffee filter in a baggie. I have about 80% sprouted in the first week. The baggie was on a seed-starting heat mat, set at 85 degree (F). These seem to be decent seeds, so everyone that has received should get some seedlings sprouted.

I'm applauding your generosity... but just FYI, I've had no trouble germinating pepper seeds that were 5 or 6 years old.

I see dreaves is out of Aji Dulce seeds, but I've got plenty of them and will continue his offer. Just Dmail me your mailing address.

critterologist - these are your Aji Dulce II peppers, from seeds you kindly sent me in last winter's seed coop. I don't know if they're exactly the same strain dreaves was offering but they sure are good, and I saved lots of seeds from 2009.

Also, if anybody else wants some Maui Purple Pepper seeds, also saved last fall, I've got lots of those too - just let me know.

Try pre-soaking the seeds in Gibberellic acid, 24-48 hrs in a closed container. (about 500-1000ppm). These seeds will sprout really fast(with heat mat and seed starting mix). Less than a week.

Nice offer, Ozark, thanks! I saved those seeds from the 2008 season... the seeds I grew out for those plants came from Flip! It's fun how these things get passed around.

Don, I wouldn't mess with Gibberellic acid unless I had some really old seeds or so few rare seeds that I needed to throw everything in my arsenal at them to get them to sprout. Soaking them for a few hours in warm water with a little hydrogen peroxide or chamomile tea and then putting the seed starting tray on the heat mat should work fine. Many of my peppers germinate in as little as 3 days with that method... I've got seedlings that will definitely want transplanting by/before this weekend, when they'll be just 2 weeks old. That's pretty good. :-)
