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 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.
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. :-)
